After watching this 4th quarter I am absolutely convinced DWade and Chris Bosh are better than Ish Smith and Tarik Black (among others.)
Bosh: 20p on 7/11, 2/3 threes, 4r, 3a in 28min. so far.
Heat have the lead 70-67 entering the final quarter. Chalmers scored 9 points, Bosh 6 in the third quarter.
Heat 70, Rickets 67 at end of three. Wade with 19, Bosh with 17. Chalmers with an impressive 13
Game basically Wade (19) and Bosh (17) against Howard (19) and Harden (19), in a league when Big Twos not exactly in vogue.
Bosh wraps an arm around Chalmers and chats after Pat Beverley annoys Chalmers into a T. Somewhere, LeBron's yelling at the TV.
Cole steps up at start of second half, as does Bosh. Heat within three.
Rockets 52, Heat 41 at half. Wade with 17 on 8-of-10, Bosh with nine, Harden with 15, Dwight with 15.
This time Wade hard to hole, finishes, and-one foul. But really, so far there's only been Wade and Bosh.
Chris Bosh just 1 of 4 in first quarter. Not sure that makes the Rockets feel any better, but it's nice of him not to torment them so far.
Bosh with the play of the preseason. Hacked hard, flips up a no-look shot that bounces on the top of the backboard and drops in. And one.
Bosh, over his head, off top of the backboard, in the basket, with an and-one bonus of a foul. Coming to a SportsCenter near you.
I'm not exactly sure how Bosh's wild shot went in but it did.
Chris Bosh was not the only Heat player the Rockets' pursued. Did not advance nearly as far, but also had talks with Deng.
Cole, Wade, Deng, S. Williams, Bosh starting for the Heat tonight against the Houston Rockets.
Norris Cole again starts in place of Chalmers at point guard. Also starting: Chris Bosh, Shawne Williams, Luol Deng and Dwyane Wade.
Bosh says he was a lesser player in Toronto than he is now. Going back to Toronto Chris Bosh would be regression.
Bosh on Houston: "They're a title contender with or without me."
Bosh: "I consider myself a decently smart person."
Bosh on Heat media sessions being a little smaller this year: "Yeah, I don't know why."
.... (2/2) Gasol said he was honored by Bosh & Wade reaching out to him, and that he spoke to LeBron, who never told him not to go to Miami.
Bosh on Tyler Johnson: "Huge potential. The more he plays, the better he's going to get."
Bosh on camp invitee Tyler Johnson: "Jumping all the time, trying to dunk everything."
Bosh on why people are surprised by Tyler Johnson's athleticism: "Well, yeah. You know the obvious..." Pauses and laughs, "He's a short PG."
Bosh on if Napier is Heat's best natural PG, "He's naturally little so he's got to be a good point guard."
Mortally crushed. Finally had a chance to ask Chris Bosh about the time KG and Matt Bonner almost fought...AND HE DOESN'T REMEMBER.
Spurs trail Heat 72-65, despite holding LeBron, Wade and Bosh scoreless.
Spoestra to hold out Wade, Bosh, Deng and Birdman tonight, likely to start Shawne Williams, Haslem, Granger, Cole and Chalmers.
Wade, Bosh, Deng, Andersen out for the Heat vs. Spurs. Cole & Chalmers starting together in backcourt.
No Wade or Bosh tonight for Miami. Hope Peter Holt takes the courtside mic at the AT&T Center and apologizes.
