Chris Bosh's beastly Night in 3 qtrs !!!! Welcome to the Party Bosh..
MIAMI (AP)—All Chris Bosh(notes) needed to get his scoring touch back was a matchup with the Phoenix Suns.
And it didn’t even take a full night’s work.
Bosh scored a season-high 35 points before sitting out the fourth quarter, LeBron James(notes) finished with 20 points and the Miami Heat ran away from the Suns 123-96 on Wednesday.
“We’re smart,” Bosh said. “And we know how to play the correct way.”
Dwyane Wade(notes) added 17 points, six rebounds and six assists for Miami, which used two big runs—a 24-9 spurt to end the first half, followed by an 18-3 flurry that closed the third quarter—to snap the Suns’ three-game winning streak. James also had nine assists and eight boards, but deferred afterward to Bosh’s breakout night.
“I think he was due—well overdue—for one of these games,” James said.
Eddie House(notes) scored 15 points and Carlos Arroyo(notes) added 10 for Miami, which enjoyed its biggest win over Phoenix in nearly 14 years and held Suns point guard Steve Nash(notes) to an uncharacteristically low two assists.
“Well, we weren’t necessarily expecting that result,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “We just wanted to focus on our game, our energy and really having a defensive edge to us again. That’s one of the most challenging teams to defend.”
