    Sorry but this one deserves it's own thread. Chris Bosh 1 for 18 vs The Bulls last night. One of worst games ever by an NBA starter. Will Perdue was never that bad.

    Highlighted the gaping hole of The Heat -- no bench.

    Bosh is going to get voted off the island.

    I will laugh so hard if the Heat don't win the title this year.

    When you have LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on your team, what the hell are you doing shooting the ball after starting 1-for-10?

    Good lord. An inside player going 1-18? Did anyone watch? How bad was he?

    The last three minutes of that game were a clusterfuck for the Heat. Wade completely broke down on defense, allowing Rose an easy pass to Deng for a wide open three. Then LeBron jacked up a contested three with 15 seconds left that barely hit anything. Then, down four with 8 seconds, Wade jacks up a running three that doesn't come close.

    And BC, he was atrocious. Boozer crowded him all night, beat him up and forced him outside. And when he did have open looks (most of which were 15-20 foot jumpers), he was laying bricks.

    He was awful. Took a lot of bad perimeter shots that The Bulls gladly gave him.

    Please note that John Starks and Dennis Johnson, to name two, accomplished similar brickwork masterpieces in Game Sevens of NBA Finals. Also, Paul Pierce went 1 for 10 in a Celtic win earlier this month.
    Shoot a lot, eventually you'll have a game where you can't hit the floor with the ball. Heat lost to a tough team on the road. I don't think they'll be NBA champs, but the way every one of their losses is seen as a foreshadowing of doom by some people is just silly.

    Disagree Michael. Think a big game like that last night highlighted The Heat's weakness that will haunt them all year.

    I had it on but was reading at the same time. Marv (I think, unless he was doing the Celtics-Nuggets) and Reggie kept harping on the lack of bench scoring. At one point, LeBron and Wade had scored the previous 21 for Miami, and toward the end of the game, the bench had two points in the second half. Bosh seemed like an afterthought by then.

    Reggie gave Wade a good scolding for leaving Deng alone in the corner to help LeBron on the smaller Rose.

    Bosh is the Ray Jackson of the Miami Heat.

    Ray Jackson is a good man. You take that back!

    I wish ESPN or the Herald or someone was keeping a running total of how many questions Bosh has been asked in all those press conferences where the three of them sit together. I can't imagine it's more than five or six.
