Chicago Bulls

Dwyane Wade’s Best Performances in Chicago

Ahead of tonight’s game in Chicago between the Bulls and the Miami Heat, I look at the one connection these two teams have. The hometown legend, Dwyane Wade, is facing his former team for the 2nd time this season but this time in Chicago. I look at D-Wade’s best performances as a Miami Heat playing in Chicago.

He has historically struggled playing in his hometown as a member of the Heat. His numbers are below his career averages and he just seems a bit off. His teams never faired well in Chicago sporting a 11-13 record, so many of his good performances finished with a loss. This list also doesn’t include his career performance in Miami. The 48 point, double overtime, “This is my house” moment that people still talk about to this day.

Here’s the list:
