It was the world debut of the Boshshack Redemption and the first time in 95 games with Miami that Chris went from solid to superstar.
It wasn’t that Big Bad Bosh led Miami in scoring with 34 as much it was the efficient and dominant manner in which he racked up his points. That’s European style of basketball? That’s a soft player? That’s who Carlos Boozer refused to call part of the Big Three?
Miami took control of the series with this 96-85 Game 3 win, but it’s the performance by Bosh that left the biggest impression.
Wonder if he heard some of the local sports talk shows where people were wondering if Udonis Haslem was a better complimentary piece to James and Wade.
Whatever the case more than at any point this season we saw James and Wade consistently deferring to Bosh and allowing him to lead the way. Guess what? He did and if Miami can somehow manage to get Bosh to perform like that from here on out, it’ll be the Heat hoisting the Larry O’Brien trophy at seasons end.
