Chris Bosh: "We fought the shot clock it seems like every single possession...They played in between us and the ball and the basket."
Chris Bosh on the Heat defense: "I don't know how you lose the best shooter in the world. I don't know how you lose that guy, but we did."
Bosh: "We had our shot. If you would tell me it’d be 95-95 with five minutes left, I’m taking that every time."
Chris Bosh was so messed up by Steph Curry's 40 tonight that he was calling him "Seth" in the postgame interviews.
Bosh: "I don't really get what we do or what we think down the stretch vs good teams. We forget everything we know."
Heat undone by late 14-0 Warriors run, lose 114-97. Bosh 26, Deng 16, Chalmers 14. Curry 40 for Golden State.
On another note, glad Chris Bosh is getting credit this year for being a great player. Never got enough during the Big 3 run for being one.
Both the Heat and the Warriors have each shot 10-for-18 from 3-point land. Curry is 7-10. Shawne Williams 3-3, Bosh 2-3, Deng 2-3.
Warriors lead the Heat 91-86 entering the final quarter. Curry has 30 points to lead all scorers. Bosh has 21 points, Deng 15, Chalmers 14.
Warriors 91, Heat 86 at end of three. Curry with 30 points, including 7 of 10 on 3s. Klay with 18. Bosh with 21 and 8 for Heat. Deng with 15
End Q3: Warriors 91, Heat 86. Golden State has blown some chances to take control. Bosh: 21p, 8r. Curry: 30p, 6a. GSW still shooting 63%.
Bosh can be so good when he gets space and can confidently go against bigger centers.
Heat lead 62-61 at half. Bosh w/ 17, Chalmers w/ 14. Curry had 18, and looks like he's just getting started.
Heat, up 16 at one point, go into halftime up 62-61 on Warriors. Bosh with 17, Chalmers 14 and Deng 12. Curry with 18 for Warriors.
Bosh inside and outside tonight.
Warriors on an 8-0 run. Heat lead 54-44, 4:58 left in Q2. Chalmers leads with 14 pts, followed by Bosh (13) and Deng (10).
Heat 40, Warriors 34, 8:43 left in Q2. Chalmers, Bosh & Deng combined: 28p on 10/16.
No shortage of points from either team in the first quarter. Heat up 36-30 vs Warriors. Chalmers leads team with 13 points, Deng 8, Bosh 7.
Bosh drains 3-pointer and Bogut gives a look of, "What am I doing defending out here?"
Heat again open with Shawne Williams on the opposing center, to ease burden on Bosh. So Bogut 2 for 2 with 4 points, 2 assists, 2 rebounds.
GSW at MIA: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; MIA -- Cole, Chalmers, Deng, Williams, Bosh. Out: Lee; Wade/Andersen.
So: Cole, Chalmers, Williams, Deng and Bosh.
Steve Kerr calls Chris Bosh "one of my favorite players in the league," cites his pick and roll coverage
Bosh said he went to bed at 9:30 last night. That's what it's like being 30 and having kids. All you want in life is sleep.
Bosh: "Maybe we should just bluff it and put all our chips on the table..." (full quote attached) http://t.co/QWBKIZUhYN
Bosh on the weird season: "It's fun."
Figure on Hassan Whiteside only if absolutely needed tonight, with Haslem and McRoberts next two in power rotation after Bosh, Shawne.
