Miami Heat: Dwyane Wade Taking a More Mental Approach to the Game

Dwyane Wade is currently averaging 18.6 points per game.

The 33-year-old shooting guard had a scorching start to the year, as he scored at least 20 points during the first five games of the season. However, his four games after that saw him average just 10.8 points on 32.7 percent shooting from the field.

Though Wade bounced back to lead the team in scoring in their victory over the Kings on Thursday night, it is a bit troubling to see that type of inconsistency from the Heat’s go-to option.

Even Wade himself acknowledged that he’s still trying to find comfort with his teammates early on in the season:

“I’m still figuring it out. Obviously, when it clicks, it clicks, it flows good. But there are certain moments, you can still tell, we’re a new team together, we’re still trying to get to our game. But from night to night, that doesn’t mean you’re automatically going to get this shot or that shot. It just varies.”

Hassan Whiteside may be stealing all the headlines, but Wade remains the Heat’s best offensive option.

It is pivotal that Wade finds consistency in his game for the Heat to advance deep into the postseason.
