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.
Final results 1. James (Cle) 1,470,483 2. Gasol (Chi) 974,177 3. Anthony (NY) 647,005 4. Gortat (Was) 570,005 5. Bosh (Mia) 542,006
Kyle Lowry beats out Dwyane Wade for East's 2nd G spot. Wade still warrants reserve spot. This may hurt Bosh. Tough to get 2 on losing team.
Lowry becomes the 4th Raptor to start in an All-Star Game (Carter, Davis, Bosh), the 3rd to be voted in (Davis was injury replacement)
First time Wade not an All-Star starter since 2005. Bosh also not a starter.
So if starters are JWall, DWade, Melo, Pau & LeBron ... who else is an All-Star lock in East besides KLowry & maybe JButler? (Kyrie? Bosh?)
Can't believe Chris Bosh didn't want to play with Dwight.
LeBron calls Mozgov the best "true big" he's played with since Z. Does note that Bosh & Love, for all their gifts, are more PF types.
Bosh and Chalmers missed open looks FTW. Hornets now trail the Heat in the standings by 1/2 a game.
How are the Heat not getting Chris Bosh any touches down the stretch again?
Back to back three-pointer by Bosh and Chalmers. Heat 74, Hornets 72 3:37 4Q.
Hornets 65, Heat 55 going into fourth. Game is at Hornets' pace, with Charlotte with a 45-31 rebounding edge. Wade-Bosh only 23 combined.
And, finally, points from Bosh. After an 0-for-5 start.
Bosh is now guarding Jefferson. That's a matchup the Hornets should like.
Big Al comes in just as Chris Bosh comes out.
Cody Zeller guarding Chris Bosh. He's had some success lately in that defensive assignment.
TONIGHT'S STARTERS Heat (18-23): Granger, Andersen, Bosh, Wade, Chalmers Hornets (17-25): Kidd-Gilchrist, Zeller, Biyombo, Henderson, Walker
With Luol Deng and Hassan Whiteside both out against the Hornets, thinking Wade, Chalmers, Granger, Bosh, Haslem.
Chris Bosh did not appear super-interested in protecting the rim last night.
Bosh on getting the starting five back together tonight: "Well, you got two quarters out of it. I’m a glass-half-full kinda guy."
