Chris Bosh

Chris Bosh was 6 for 10 from 2-point range, 0 for 4 from 3-point range, including a miss from long range that would have gotten the Heat within one point with about a minute remaining.

The Heat have no problem with Bosh taking the long shot, though the Spurs were clearly trying to ensure that the likes of LeBron James, Ray Allen and Mike Miller did not have any good looks from 3-point land in the final minutes. Bosh was alone, the shot missed, and the Heat wound up falling in Game 1.

”No mattter what the situation is I have confidence in myself and I know my teammates have confidence in me,” Bosh said. ”Every shot I shoot I expect to go in. Some do, some don’t.”

He’s now shooting 14 for 50 - 28 percent - in his last five games.
