Schuhmann: Brewer's Shutting Down D-Wade in the ECF

Schuhmann: Brewer's Shutting Down D-Wade in the ECF

Dwyane Wade's numbers are considerably worse with Ronnie Brewer on the floor through Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, John Schuhmann found (NBA.com):

In the series, Wade is shooting just 5-for-15 (33 percent) from the field, including 0-for-7 from midrange with Brewer on the floor. He's shooting 16-for-35 (46 percent) with Brewer on the bench. This is a continuation of Brewer's success in defending Wade in the regular season, when Wade shot 38 percent with Brewer on the floor and 54 percent with him on the bench.

It's a tiny sample, but Wade's had much more success against Keith Bogans:

And Wade's lickin' his chops when Kyle Korver's on the court:

That said, Bogans was the only of the Bulls' three shooting guards to hold Wade under his averages at all in their three regular season matchups with Korver a whopping minus-24.3 points per 36 minutes in 43 minutes with Wade on the court:
