How does Chris Bosh get fired up for a game? He doesn’t. Bosh prefers to play classical music or jazz while he is buried in a book before games. It does not get his blood pumping any faster, but it does help settle his mind and prepare him for the mental challenge ahead. When Miami opens the playoffs at home against Charlotte on Sunday (3:30 p.m., ABC), Bosh plans to prepare himself by starting in on “The Art of War” because “it’ll put me in the mood for this time of year.” Palm Beach Post

When Chris Bosh's wife is pregnant, the wives of Riley and Arison are at the baby shower. When Wade is getting engaged, he's making the announcement at Riley's South Beach apartment, at the team holiday party. When Wade is celebrating a birthday, Riley and Arison are having drinks on his boat. When James is vacationing in Europe, he's meeting up with Arison. And when he's getting married, you'll find Riley and Arison on that dance floor. And it isn't just for the super-famous guys, either. Heat lifer Udonis Haslem has rarely been as moved as he was at his mother's wake, when Riley came to his rough neighborhood trailed by members of the Heat front office. ESPN.com

"Andy was at a gas station," Riley said. "And he said Dwyane had accepted his extension, and it was a three-plus-one [three years guaranteed, plus one option year]. And it was Dwyane and LeBron James and Chris Bosh and Amar'e Stoudemire and a bunch of other guys that signed their extensions and they're all three years with one option. And I said, 'Well, who are the other guys?' And he gave me the list. And I said, 'Well, we're going to be players in 2010.'" ESPN.com

Indiana reserve Ian Mahinmi took James down from behind on a drive to the basket. Somewhere in that crash, James took a hit to the nose and began bleeding. He broke his nose in late February at Oklahoma City and was unsure how much damage was done to it tonight. “Our guys are getting punched in the face, man,” Chris Bosh said. “We’re getting punched in the face and clotheslined out there and we’re getting two shots and then we get an offensive foul call and it’s a flagrant. I guess maybe we need to really decipher what flagrant means because I don’t feel like they were going for the ball in plenty of situations. “If you can come down and clothesline somebody, it’s open season and people are gonna get hurt. I don’t know. We’re gonna have to revisit what flagrant foul means. They had one and we had none even though LeBron got punched in the face and clotheslined. I guess it was a play on the ball.” Palm Beach Post

According to Bosh, that’s hardly been the case during this current tumultuous stretch. “I haven’t heard nothing, just nothing,” said Bosh, who took his routinely constructive criticism to a new depth Saturday. “We just show up and do whatever. [After] a loss, nobody’s upset. [After] a win, nobody’s happy. There’s no passion. There’s nothing. If you’re frustrated, say you’re frustrated. Give reasons for that. We just need some dialogue around here. We’ve been keeping things in for a whole season now. And we’re running out of time. We need to let it out and have some urgency.” ESPN.com

Bosh responded to his own challenge. “We’re going to have to draw the line in the sand somewhere,” he said. “We don’t talk about it. We’re not expressing ourselves in the locker room or on the court. So I figure I’ll be the first one to say it. We suck. And if we don’t play better, we’ll be watching the championship at home.” ESPN.com
