Dwyane Wade Gets Into Erik Spoelstra’s Face [VIDEO]

Dwyane Wade was absolutely brutal in Game 3 against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night.  Part of his horrible performance included getting into the face of his head coach.

Dwyane Wade was pathetic in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.  Wade shot 2-for-13 from the field.  He only scored five points in Miami’s 94-75 loss to the Indiana Pacers.  Wade also had words with his head coach Erik Spoelstra.  Sure, “pathetic” is a blunt description of Wade’s performance, but it’s the most fitting.

Dwyane Wade took exception to the fact that Erik Spoelstra was telling him to get back on defense.  Wade’s lackadaisical effort to get back on defense led to an easy bucket by the Pacers.  Spoelstra didn’t like it.  Wade didn’t like Spoelstra telling him he didn’t like it. 

The Miami Heat can try to spin this however they’d like.  Spoelstra said in his postgame press conference that things like this happen all of the time.  That’s true, but that doesn’t mean that everything is peachy right now in Heat-land.  Miami is now trailing the series to the Pacers 2-1.  Chris Bosh, one of their best players, is out indefinitely with an abdominal strain.  This Wade-Spoelstra confrontation would mean much less if all of these other things weren’t going badly.  Unfortunately, for the Heat, they are.
