"It starts with catching them," Chris Bosh said. "They're a .500 ball club. We're trying to get to where they are."
I think East coaches, to give four All-Star spots to various Hawks, will have to leave either Bosh or Wade at home. Don't think that happens

Whiteside just ripped the ball from Bosh! Then moved Gasol with two thumbs.

Heat look to expand their 12-point lead with Napier, Wade, Deng, Bosh & Whiteside on the floor.

Bosh's last 3 games: 17.3p on 42% FGs and 6.0r. Not good enough. He's got 6p on 3/8 FGs and 1r so far today at Chicago.
Nice start by the Heat. Chalmers, Deng and Wade moving well with the ball. Bosh on target with his midrange shot.
TODAY'S STARTERS Heat (19-24): Deng, Bosh, Andersen, Wade Chalmers Bulls (29-16): Snell, Noah, Gasol, Butler, Rose
Heat sticking with Chris Andersen over injured Hassan Whiteside in the starting 5. Chalmers, Wade, Deng, Bosh.
Same starting lineup for the Heat today vs Bulls: Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Chris Bosh and Chris Andersen.
Bosh on Watson's miss at the buzzer: "You do a fist pump and get the hell out of there. A bounce finally goes our way for a change."
Happy with any victory, even a sloppy one like that? Bosh: "Yep. Damn right."
Now an 11-0 Indiana run, with Bosh rushed to scoring table.
Pacers close Q3 on a 9-0 run. Heat 75, Indiana 64. Deng & Bosh with 17p each.
Heat 75, Pacers 64 going into fourth. 10 points from Heat lead shaved late in third. Bosh and Deng with 17 points apiece.
Miami shot 13-19, 68.4% from the field, in the second quarter. Bosh was 4-5 for nine points.
Worth noting, Heat have not led by more than 17 in any half this season. Up 54-37 at break. Bosh with 15 for Heat.
HALF: Heat 54, Pacers 37. Bosh leads w/ 15p on 6/10. Wade: 7p, 3a. Deng has 11p, 2r, 2a. MIA (15a on 22 FGs) shoots 58%, holds IND to 37%.
Bosh has scored three straight times for the Heat. He now has 14 points on 6/9 shooting.
Chris Bosh has awoken from his slumber.
Heat really, really need more from Bosh. His TOTALS from the last 2 games: 33p on 12/32 FGs (1/9 threes), 14r, 1b.
Bosh/Wade/Deng with 15 of Miami's 17 points so far.
Bosh and Deng have scored 11 of the Heat's first 15 points.
So it's sounding like Heat will get back to lineup of Whiteside, Bosh, Deng, Wade and Chalmers.
Dwyane Wade left off the Eastern starters opens a door for an Atlanta Hawk. I doubt coaches take both Wade and Bosh from an 18-24 team.
Yes, I have a hard time putting both Bosh and Wade in, but Wade has been great and front court is weak (with Butler listed as G).
If I’m picking, I probably go: Butler, Wade, Horford, Bosh, Teague, Millsap, Korver (over Kyrie and others).
Kyrie vs. Teague vs. Wade is a tough call. Bosh vs. Horford? Difficult.
Missing from the the "usual starters" are Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Kevin Durant, & Chris Paul. 2015 10 starters from 10 teams. No teammates
And that’s nothing against Chris Bosh, who is an outstanding player.
Lowry becomes fifth Raptor to be named to the All-Star team: Bosh (2006-10), Carter (2000-04), Antonio Davis (2001) and DeMar DeRozan (2014)
Have to wonder about Bosh making it now that it would require coaches to select 2 of 7 reserves from Heat, especially with no Hawk starters.
Marcin Gortat finished 4th in the frontcourt voting ahead of Chris Bosh, Kevin Love, Joakim Noah, Nikola Vucevic, Paul Millsap, Al Horford.
