HEAT Produced: 2012 NBA Finals? It. Is. Finished.

Chris Bosh saved his most productive playoff game for last to help the Miami HEAT blowout the Oklahoma City Thunder to win the 2012 NBA Championship.

I passed out from drinking champagne in the middle of Dwyane Wade's postgame press conference. Woke up 90 minutes later and haven't been back to sleep since. To make a long story short, this will just be a numbers dump. In-depth analysis of the 2012 NBA Finals and Playoffs will be posted in the following days.

This article uses Estimated Wins Produced. Since an average team's winning percentage is 0.500, an average player produces 0.100 estimated wins per 48 minutes (est.WP48). A star player produces 0.200 est.WP48 and great players produce 0.300 est.WP48. See the HEAT Produced Page for more information on Estimated Wins Produced.

Bosh Saved the Best For Last
Bosh produced an est. 0.3 wins for the HEAT in Game 5, his highest of the 2012 Playoffs. The table below lists Bosh's production in each playoff game.
