Player of the Night

Dwayne Wade, Miami Heat
vs. Phoenix Suns
35 points, 16 dimes, 6 boards

I'm basically taking over Ricky's spot of chronicling Dwayne Wade's recent string of dominant fantasy performances.

Wade finds himself as the Player of the Night for the second time this week, a trend that very well may continue until season's end.

Follow along after the jump...

What we've always known about Wade is that he's a natural born buckets machine. He'll fill it up as good as anyone in the league when healthy, but he's got a whole new bag of tricks with him this year.

He's been dealing dimes like a natural born point guard while maintaining a scoring average that's among the best in the NBA.

I'd do just about anything to get him on my squad for the home stretch of the fantasy season.
