Dwyane Wade is adjusting to not having the ball in his hands on nearly every possession late in games.
“I’m a guy used to having the ball 100 percent of the time at the end of games,” Wade said Tuesday. “It’s been an adjustment. Every adjustment is tough, when it comes to taking something away.”
In games when the Heat was tied or trailed by one, two or three, with less than 30 seconds left, Miami has made just 4 of 22 shots from the field, and only one in a win. That win came on a three-pointer by Eddie House at Oklahoma City.
Wade said he is “trying to be a team guy, don’t make a big stink about it, try to figure out a way to play my role when I’m off the ball late in games. If I’m looked at as a screener, then I’m going to set a hell of a screen. That’s all I can do. There will be certain games I will have it.”
