BOSTON (AP)- Dwyane Wade says he will find a way to be more effective for the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics.
Wade scored only 18 points Friday as the Celtics won 101-91 to cut Miami's lead to 2-1 in the series. Slowed by the Celtics' double-teaming scheme, the All-Star guard had his streak of 12 straight 20-point playoff games against Boston snapped.
Wade and LeBron James say they still aren't counting on having Chris Bosh back from injury, so they know the Celtics will continue to focus their strategy on containing Wade and forcing Miami's role players to try to make shots.
The Celtics hope to keep getting the ball inside to Kevin Garnett, who scored 24 points Friday.
