Bosh on if Napier is Heat's best natural PG, "He's naturally little so he's got to be a good point guard."
Mortally crushed. Finally had a chance to ask Chris Bosh about the time KG and Matt Bonner almost fought...AND HE DOESN'T REMEMBER.

Bosh back. Heat clearly looking for a win, and might just get it as Bogut checks out for Warriors. No Golden State starters currently in.

Did tonight feel like progress for the Heat? Bosh: "For about 15 minutes, then no. So no."
Heat very close now at 103-99. Wade, Napier and Brown have led the charge with their play on both ends of the floor. Bosh has 22 points.
Wade and Bosh look like they'll be in the game the rest of the way. Another good test for our reserves.
