MIAMI — Dwyane Wade wasn't on target for his first-team All-NBA honors, but he still won it.

Rounding out a pair of MVP votes on the first NBA All-Star Game team was his buddy, fellow South Florida resident Luol Deng, who led all of Division I with 31 points, 15 rebounds and eight blocks.

Deng finished with 16 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and four steals.

Wade, though, wasn't on target.

It was one of his worst performances of the season. Even on a night when Wade, who was once considered a top-10 player as a rookie, played with such ease, his shot had a significant decline.

"It wasn't bad shooting, but it wasn't great shooting," Wade told USA TODAY Sports after Game 1. "It was good enough, but sometimes you're not going to be able to execute your game."

Wade acknowledged it could've been better.

"It's frustrating. It's frustrating, but we got to find a way to take it day-by-day," he said. "If you don't take it day-by-day, it's going to be bad. I'm happy for Lu. I'm happy for the team, but we got to find a way to make it to the Finals."

Wade came into Game 1 with a reputation for being a tough shooter and finishing well below his career average of 36 percent from beyond the arc.

In that game, though, Wade shot 35.8 percent while going 1-for-14 from the field and 4-for-19 on 3-pointers and 2-of-10 from the free throw line.

Wade also had the same stat line on Sunday but struggled from long range, going 7-for-25 from the field and 8-for-25 from 3-point range. Wade was 2-for-9 from the 3-point line, and his 15-for-27 shooting on the night was far out of line.

Wade said it's important for his team, though, to find a way to get to the playoffs and get closer to the Western Conference finals.

"I think we're right where we need to be right now, and we'll get to be closer in the standings and be closer on the road," Wade said.

Mp revives plans to tackle violence binge drinking, drink-driving and drug-taking

'I would not be here today if it weren't for the money I'm bringing home.

'I'm trying to build a life and be a positive influence on young people and help them to build up their confidence.'

The 30-year-old told Newsbeat at the time he had quit alcohol in 2011 after drinking several times a week for five years and had come across no evidence of the impact of alcohol on someone's life beyond alcohol.

He is now taking a second course at a hospital for alcoholism and currently working with a charity to assist others who may be at risk of alcohol-related problems.

But he admits there has been a change in his attitude to his past.

He said: 'I'm no longer using, I'm not going to go into rehab.

'Now I've seen a change in how I am going about it, and I've got my own personal team to manage my emotions, my own mind as well as the world at large and what I do here.

'And so far, nothing has affected the way I work.

'The support they have been showing me and people are supportive. I don't need it. I'm a professional. I'm not using it to get a high. I'm not using it to get attention.

'My friends, my family, my staff have all said what a great person I am, what an awesome person I am.

'I feel very happy. I feel amazing in every minute.'

And as for his future, he wants to be an iconic figure around the world.

He said: 'I've always wanted to become an international icon. I want people to recognise me on the world stage.

'A successful person is a very powerful person, very influential. When people speak to me, I don't feel lonely and I feel like a normal person.'
