NBA Finals: Dwyane Wade says Heat need to blame themselves

The Miami Heat is one game away from elimination to the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals following a 107-86 loss in game four. One of the biggest reasons for the game four loss was a lack of production from anyone besides LeBron James. Star guard Dwyane Wade put up just 10 points and shot just 3-of-13 from the field in the loss.

After the loss it appears Dwayne Wade is mixing in some cliches with pointed criticism of his own play.

At least he didn’t call his teammates out without first pointing the finger at himself too. That gem of a quote followed another blast of truth from James himself, as he put game four’s performance about as bluntly as possible:

Up until game four, Wade had played a good supporting role for the Heat—averaging 18.3 points per game, 4.6 rebounds and shooting 55.6 percent from the field. However, in a crucial home game on Thursday, Wade and fellow star Chris Bosh failed to show up to support James and it cost the Heat dearly.

The duo combined for just 22 points, while James led the Heat with 28 points himself. If the Heat want to see their season continue, Wade is dead on in pointing out that everyone on the team needs to do some soul searching.
