MIAMI (AP) - Dwyane Wade says he is simply trying to do what he can to help the Miami Heat win.
Some nights, that still means he can do plenty.
Wade has been bothered by a sore right knee for more than two months, and his aggression is clearly limited by that problem. His scoring is way down over his postseason norms, and he's hardly getting to the free throw line at all. But with Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Chicago still up for grabs, Wade was the only starter to make a field goal in the final quarter.
He delivered when the Heat needed him most, and now they're back in the East finals for the fifth time in his career.
