Default Is the key to let Bosh get his?

Last night, LeBron and Wade were limited to 33 points. Bosh nearly matched that himself, but Miami got crushed especially in the second half. We've seen instances in the regular season where LeBron and Wade dominated, but Bosh was subpar at best and stunk it up at worst and they still got by. Last night, Bosh was the one to dominate while the other two were severely limited. If you're Chicago, is that the key to get to the Finals?

I think i read somewhere that this team is at its best (record-wise) when Bosh looks to be aggressive. So no, I don't think the key is to let Bosh get his. It's pretty evident now that the win yesterday was just a great effort by a great team.

The key to any series is to stop the star players and make the role players win the games. So yes, this is key.

Last night was just the Bull's night. EVERYTHING was falling for them. That throw up 3 by Watson and that Deng shot that got the roll just showed how lucky they were getting. Also, Wade and James played like they usually don't. Bulls are good though, that's why they are still playing.

wade and bron weren't aggressive at all

almost every time lebron had the ball, i think everyone already knew he was going to shoot

i cant even imagine a blowout like last night if it was a '10 playoffs and bron's team was way worse

i remember wade ripping the bulls like toilet paper back in the days

The Bulls played stifling defense yesterday without question, but Deng said it best after the game when he stated that some of the shots that usually fall for LeBron/Wade simply weren't going in. How many lay-ups did Wade miss last night in the first half? I saw at least two within a few minutes of one another. With that said, I think Bosh thrives in off night situations for the other two guys because he gets more touches as a result. If Wade or LeBron come out hot, expect Bosh to lose confidence when he struggles to establish a rhythm.

I wouldn't really say the key to beating them is letting Bosh get his, though it wouldn't hurt to try it again in game 2. He seems to go on one dimensional stretches and if he's putting up 30 points he'll likely slack on the boards, which proves advantageous for the opposition.

Not really, Bosh just had it going.

even in vicories, tom thibodeau grits his teeth whenever someone on the other team scores 30 points.

They hit 10 three pointers last night...they've been averaging 7 in the Playoffs. They didn't play out of their mind at all, they just played their game to a T.

It helps that most of them were all WIDE open, outside of CJ Watson's that he just had to throw up because of the shot clock.

@OP's topic. No Bosh just was on last night. He also had a handful of easy buckets thanks to some turnovers from Chicago and some great passes from his teammates. I don't expect him to be that effective again for the rest of the series, he played a GREAT game. I also don't expect to be able to limit LeBron AND Wade again. But taking away just one of the Big 3 and you're a hand up since they don't have any depth.
