AT&T Center - Through two NBA Finals games against the San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh is shooting 46% from the field, averaging 12.5 points per game, 7.5 rebounds, 3 steals and one block.
Bosh is also averaging two 3-point attempts and he’s yet to make one. Shooting 3-pointers is something Bosh said the Spurs want him to do Tuesday at the Heat’s shoot around in San Antonio.
“They want me to shoot threes,” said Bosh. “I could tell by looking at the film.”
“With this team it looks like that’s what they want me to do and I’m not going to do it,” continued Bosh.
For Bosh, he sees the Spurs giving him open 3-point shots as more of a psychological move.
“It’s a little mid game,” said Bosh of the Spurs’ tactics. “I know what they’re doing.”
Bosh said he’s going to try to score more inside the arc and work with the offense from there so he can help himself build an easier rhythm. He said he still might step out to the 3-point line if he thinks his team could use the scoring opportunity.
On his team winning by 19-points in Game 2, Bosh knows Game 3 will be much different.
“That rarely happens in the Finals,” said Bosh of the blowout win Sunday in Miami. “We’re going to have to come in here and earn it,” said Bosh on the possibility of winning Game 3.
Bosh knows the same Spurs team that got blown out in Miami will look different tonight. “They’re going to make adjustments offensively and defensively.”
The Spurs will need to make adjustments quickly as the Heat have taken their offense out of sync. Here are a few numbers to show how dominant the Heat defense has been.
Spurs playoff scoring: 101.6 points per game. Vs. Heat: 88 points
Field Goal Shooting: 47%. Vs. Heat: 41%
Assists: 23.6 assists. Vs. Heat: 16 assists.
Defensively, the Spurs are also having some issues.
Point allowed in playoffs: 92 points per game. Vs. Heat: 96 points.
Opponent Field Goal shooting: 42%. Vs. Heat: 47%.
Opponent 3-point shooting: 34%. Vs. Heat: 41%

Chris Bosh either sees the writing on the wall, or he has a sour taste in his mouth from being robbed.
The Sun Sentinel is reporting that Bosh is putting his 12,368-square-foot home on Miami Beach on the market. Bosh said the decision was made with his family in mind, because his wife, Adrienne, is expecting the couple’s second child, and not because of concerns about the...
Chris Bosh is putting his 12,368-square-foot home in Miami on the market.
Bosh said that the decision is not basketball-related and is for his family.
"I'm in Miami for the rest of my career," Bosh told the Sun Sentinel. "I plan to be there. I plan to retire there. I plan to win hopefully a lot more championships there. So that's where home is."
According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, the Bobcats are looking to trade their No. 4 overall draft pick in exchange for an ‘All-Star-caliber player.’ That player could be Chris Bosh, who the Heat are rumored to be looking to trade this summer.

Chris Bosh has had a pretty quiet NBA Finals and like the rest of the Heat, he was disgusted with his performance in Game 3.
There are several reports going around that the Charlotte Bobcats would be willing to cough up the fourth overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft to the Miami Heat in exchange for Chris Bosh. Bosh would be a top candidate for the Bobcats as they look to try and build a win now type of team.

Lil Wayne explained his relationship with the Miami Heat, including negative comments he made about their top players.
Los Angles Lakers forward Metta World Peace says he’s a big fan of Miami Heat star LeBron James. But he thinks the reigning MVP needs to step it up in the NBA Finals. “Mentally, the Spurs are strongest right now,” World Peace told ESPNLosAngeles.com prior to the Heat’s 113-77 loss to
When we think about the NBA Finals, we think about the names.
And, by golly, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh sure do give the world plenty of reasons to love or hate (and mostly, watch) the Miami Heat.
Granted, the names on the San Antonio Spurs arent quite as dynamic. But die-hards sure do love chanting the names of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginibili.
All of that...
