Heat coach Stan Van Gundy put out the call before Saturday's game against New Orleans: He's looking for more offense.

Entering the game, Shaquille O'Neal (22.9 points per game) and Dwyane Wade (24.2 ppg) have combined to score 46.1 percent of the Heat's season average of 102.2 points per game.

But in the five games leading up to Saturday's game, O'Neal and Wade have combined to average 53.4 percent. Van Gundy suspects that's why his team was 2-3 in those games.

"We pretty much relied on Dwyane and Shaq, Eddie (Jones) when he's in there, and Damon (Jones), and haven't gotten a lot out of anybody other than those four guys lately, and that's been a major problem," Van Gundy said.
