Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports:

Bosh admitted to playing passive the first six games. He realized a change was necessary heading into the New Jersey game. It didn’t help he faced criticism for being nearly non-existent in a loss to the New Orleans Hornets the previous night.

So Bosh reverted to the player who was a five-time All-Star with the Toronto Raptors.

He played aggressive. He showed passion. It resulted in a season-high 21 points, easily his best effort with the Heat. After the game, Bosh confidently stated the Nets caught him on the “wrong night” because his frustrations reached an all-time high.

He was having difficulty adjusting to a new role of being the third option behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

“This process hasn’t been easy for me,” said Bosh, who is averaging 14.4 points and 5.4 rebounds.
