Jordan Hill is getting his Chris Bosh on, splashing 17 footers, but Griffin's heating up on the other end w/23 points. LAL up 76-72.
Last yr Heat had fun Halloween at home|Bosh-“No offense to Philly, but there’s probably not as much to do. Probably just have a nice dinner"
Bosh: "I didn’t even know it was Halloween until my son-- until Spiderman caught me with his web. I don't have a costume."
Bosh caught a little NBA last night, “but I didn’t watch too much. I have kids.”
Bosh on Norris Cole: "He’s played four years, but I think he has a lot more experience than any of us had at four years."
Big news item I forgot to relay the other night: After originally announcing his retirement effective in '20, Bosh now says it'll be '21.
Such a difference for Lebron playing with guys who are "Learning" to be role players. Had a different luxury with DWade, Bosh, and Chalmers
Cohesion b/t LeBron, Love and Kyrie quicker because his two new running mates easily took lesser roles. Bosh and Wade had success w/o him
During final season in Toronto, Chris Bosh posted 25 pts/15 rebs eight times… He didn’t do it once over last 4 yrs in MIA- until last night
Looks kind of weird seeing Chris Bosh on the Top 5 list for rebounding. Yes, I know it's early. Very early.
Bosh had a night I guess.
Nice night for Chris Bosh: 26 points, 15 boards, 4 assist, 1 steal, and 1 block. Had to play close to 40 minutes. Wade also with 21 for MIA.
39 minutes for Bosh tonight. That'll be tough to keep up. Averaged 32 last year.
Tonight was first time Bosh has gone 26 and 15 in Heat uniform.
Wiz-Heat was super-sloppy. Great two-way game from Bosh. CHI looked great. NYK looked like a team learning a new offense. Now for Russ...
Bosh on Ennis' dunk: "He could've jumped a little higher."
Pretty great start to the new era. It's obvious now that LeBron was just holding Bosh back from true greatness.

Wizards often struggle against perimeter-oriented bigs, so they have no chance against Bosh.
Chris Bosh is 3-of-4 from three-point range tonight. The rest of the HEAT have shot 2-of-20 from beyond the arc. Ouch.
