Chris Bosh is still a gamesome decision and Spoelstra says if Bosh does play he won't start and play in "short bursts." 17 minutes ago via TweetDeckReplyRetweetFavorite @Pflanns Paul Flannery

Chris Bosh will reportedly go through his pregame routine before the Heat decide for certain his availability, though ESPN has been reporting since later Sunday night that Bosh is set to play as long as he doesn’t experience any setbacks.

I have no idea how healthy Bosh is, but I thought this tidbit interesting:

Garnett knows a little something what Bosh is going through. During Boston’s championship season in 2008, Garnett missed slightly over three weeks with an abdominal strain and returned in a February game to tally four points, four turnovers and eight rebounds in just 20 minutes. The Celtics lost that February game to Denver.

Garnett remembers what it felt like to test his core muscles in a actual game setting, but is keeping his secrets close to vest in case Bosh might be looking for tips. When asked whether he had any specific memories from that game, Garnett made a simple reply.

“I don’t. No memories that I’d like to share.”

Garnett shot 2-7 in 20 minutes that day in 2008 on his way to those four points, eight rebounds and four turnovers. The Celtics lost 124-118 to the Denver Nuggets.

The very next night, Garnett tallied 17 points and 15 rebounds on 7-16 shooting over 31 minutes. The Celtics still lost, 119-117 to Golden State.

Those two games were the two highest scoring outputs Boston surrendered that season.
