After two losses in Boston, Miami Heat center and all-star, Chris Bosh, is probable to return in game 5.
This decision couldn’t come any sooner as the Heat have dropped two straight games to the Celtics after taking a commanding 2-0 lead while playing in Miami to start the series.
Since those first two wins, Miami has struggled on the defensive end against the tough, experienced Celtics squad. Miami has had trouble dealing with Kevin Garnet and Bosh may be exactly what they need.
Miami dropped game 4 in Boston by just two points (93-91) in overtime after being down 61-47 at the half. The Heat rallied back int he second half, outscoring the Celtics 42-28, but it was too little, too late and Boston tied the series 2-2.
Chris Bosh hasn’t played in a game since May first’s 2nd round matchup against the Indiana Pacers, where Bosh strained his lower abdominal.
While Bosh is categorized as the heat’s 3rd best player (behind Wade and LeBron) he was likely also the most irreplaceable. Bosh’s ability to work the pick and pops and be the Heat’s on real inside presence was very underrated until they were his presence on the court.
