Dwyane Wade's poor decision-making prevented the Miami HEAT from sweeping the New York Knicks, but the HEAT Produced Playoff stats show they wouldn't have a 3-1 lead in the series without his productive play.
All the stats for estimated wins produced (est.WP) in the HEAT-Knicks series are now available on the HEAT Produced Page.
