The Heat survive Mt. Vucevic -- again -- as Chris Bosh (32 points, 10 rebounds) is now back on track. Charlotte in Miami tomorrow.
With UM down 20-7 & in danger of falling to 6-5, Heat moves to 7-6 with 99-92 win at Orlando. Bosh 32 points, 10 boards.
Best games of the season for both Bosh and Chalmers to power the Heat victory vs Magic tonight.
Heat, led by Chalmers and Bosh, have picked a good time to play their best basketball tonight with a 10-2 run in the 4th quarter.
The Heat need Chris Bosh to close this thing out. Would do wonders for his, and team's, confidence going forward.
Heat 68, Magic 67 going into fourth quarter. Bosh with 18. Vucevic with 21 points and 16 rebounds.
Heat 49, Magic 46 at half. Heat finally getting to rim. Bosh with 14 points, five rebounds at the intermission. Napier with nine off bench.
Heat 22, Magic 18 after one. Bosh with seven points, five rebounds, including his 7,000th career
Shannon Brown starting for Heat in backcourt alongside Mario Chalmers. Also starting: Bosh, Deng, Shawne Williams.
Raps starters the last time they beat LeBron on road (Apr 6 2004): VC/Bosh/Mo-Pete/Donyell/Jalen. Only Boozer/James still active from CLE
I seem to remember Chris Bosh taking a lot of hits for suggesting it would be frustrating for Kevin Love to get used to playing with LeBron.
BOSH: “We are not in the West. We don’t have to play teams like [LA] 4 Xs a yr. At 6-6 we would be in what 12th place. So, it’s all good."
LeBron said s'thing 2day about Love that reminded me of what he said about Bosh in '13 Finals. That if he demands ball in post, he'll get it
Bosh, "We have to continue to learn each other. Until we get that continuity, we still have to play defense."
Bosh, "We came into this game knowing we're going to have to take away something. We didn't protect inside; we didn't protect outside."
BOSH: “Today was just another ass whooping.”
Clippers take down the Heat 110 - 93. Griffin & Paul with 26 points each. Bosh 28 points 7 rebounds. LAC goes up to 7-4, Miami down to 6-6
Clippers 88, Heat 66 going into fourth. Chris Bosh has 28 points, no other performances of note for Heat.
Bosh now has 28 of the Heat's 61 points. Deng is the only other Heat player to reach double figures in scoring with 13.
Bosh really good tonight. Rest of the Heat? Really not.
Halftime: Clippers up 58-40. CP, Jordan and Blake all in double figures. Bosh with 18.
Clippers 58, Heat 40 at half. Bosh with 18, rest of Heat with not so much.
Clippers hammering the Heat in Miami. I'll be curious about Heat's record in games Wade or Bosh misses.
With 1:16 left in first quarter, Mario Chalmers becomes the first Heat player other than Bosh or Deng to score.
Deng (4 points) and Bosh (7 points) are the only Heat players to have scored so far with 4 minutes left in the first quarter.
Bosh and Deng remain only Heat players to score, with 3:56 left in first. Napier and McRoberts enter.
TONIGHT'S STARTERS Heat: Cole, Chalmers, Williams, Deng, Bosh Clippers: Paul, Reddick, Barnes, Griffin, Jordan
It's also interesting that Bosh had his "breakout game" in Game 11, scoring 35. Game 11 tomorrow. Love talked about finding his rhythm...
