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.
Mario Chalmers at his best in attack mode. That's been the case tonight.
Mario Chalmers has made himself invaluable.
With Deng's inconsistency, McRoberts' rust & Granger's unavailability, the re-signing of Chalmers stands out as a rare positive so far.

Mario Chalmers on last night's KU game: "I don't want to talk about that."
Per Elias: Mario Chalmers has led MIA in pts & asts for 3 straight games. Last Heat player other than LeBron & Wade to do that: Shaq in 2005
Heat didn't waste points at the FT line (24/27). Chalmers hit 11/13 and Bosh hit 4/4.
So that's it? That's all on the Chalmers alley oop? Andersen: “That’s it. That’s all you’re gonna get out of me. That’s it. I’m serious."
Let's talk about the alley oop from Chalmers. Chris Andersen: “I ain’t got nothing to say, homie." Nothing? "It was a good alley oop.”
I really question Deron's BB IQ. Down 7 w 1:58 left, he fouled Chalmers forcing jumper w 8-tenths on shot clock. Brain drain next surgery?
BKN/Hollins better hope this is the low point. Got outscored 57-40 in the 2nd half by Mario Chalmers and co.
Some context on Chalmers' 13 FT attempts in BKN 2nite: he didn't crack double-digits in 1st 3 years of Big 3 era. Didn't top 10 last season.
Without Wade, Deng and McRoberts, Heat (6-5) snaps 3-game skid with 95-83 win in Brooklyn. Chalmers 22, Bosh 15, Cole 12,Napier 11, Ennis 10

That Chalmers layup is a big one, and shows how dangerous Bosh is. Garnett can’t leave him on the perimeter. But where’s the help?

Heat open up 10-pt lead on BKN w/ Chalmers' alley-oop to Chris Andersen, then two quick bucks by the Nets. Miami up 64-58, 2:35 left in Q3.
Chalmers, Cole dominating the third quarter for the Heat. Obviously motivated by the fear of losing minutes to the great Shabazz Napier.
Seen so many Heat games over the last few years, and this is the first I can recall where Chalmers is the best player on the floor.
Kevin Garnett avoids a technical after the replay. He gave Chalmers a little shove on the way down.
Referees are reviewing this foul on Mario Chalmers. Williams was called for a foul, and Garnett gave a push at the end.
