What makes you wake up in a cold sweat?

For Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade, it's the thought of getting posterized by Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant.

In a new Gatorade commercial released on Wednesday, Wade and Durant are featured in a face-off on the court. When Wade originally blocks a dunk attempt by Durant, it's the Thunder All-Star who wakes up from a perceived nightmare realizing he needs to work harder to beat his nemesis.

When Durant finally gets the skills to beat Wade to the basket, it's Wade who then wakes up wondering what he needs to do to stop the bad dream.

Life may have the opportunity to imitate art as Wade's Heat and Durant's Thunder are the favorites to meet in the NBA Finals for a second straight year. Last season, Miami claimed their second title by defeating Oklahoma City in five games.
