PLAYERS: Chris Bosh
TEAMS: Miami Heat
Last night the Miami Heat nor the Toronto Raptors had Chris Bosh playing for them. Chris Bosh didn’t play due to the birth of his daughter on Monday. The Heat have won 12 straight against the Raptors since Bosh has joined the team. I’ve been complaining about Miami not playing with energy or explosiveness. Maybe they read my article (I doubt that), but they looked like themselves last night. Despite being down by four points going into the fourth quarter, the Heat were in reach of taking control. They made Toronto play Miami Heat basketball and opened up the fourth quarter  with a 12-0 run. When the Heat are in reach and make teams run with them, there’s no hope for opponents. LeBron James had a monstrous game as he scored a season high of 35 points grabbing eight rebounds along with eight assists. This was the 67th time in LeBron’s career with a 30 point, eight rebound, and eight assists game. For a quick comparison, Michael Jordan did it 52 times.  James also reached the double-digit point mark for 500 straight times. James has more games scoring at least 50 points (nine times) compared to nights where scores less than 10 (eight times). LeBron has reached double figures since January 6, 2007 against the New Jersey Nets. All of these accolades are beyond impressive by James. He deserves the praise because he has matured into becoming one of the best all time. Like I’ve said before, he’s the face of the NBA. He’s a leader, a good player, a businessman, and a family man. LeBron James Commercial for Samsung Galaxy: Family time The Heat won 104-95 giving them a 3-2 record for the season. The energy and explosiveness was there last night. LeBron took control of the game and his energy rubbed off on his teammates. It’s a spillover effect. When LeBron, Wade, or Bosh are playing well and show they’re hype about the game; it trickles down to the rest of the team. Dwayne Wade scored 20 points, grabbed six rebounds, and added five assists. He looked a lot better on the court and the rest he’s taking  is slowly paying off for him. Ray Allen also played well as he added fourteen points and overall the whole Heat team looked better. Thursday night will be a true test for the Heat. They host the Los Angelo’s Clippers who are very hot right now with a 3-1 record. Chris Paul is leading the Clippers in style putting up high numbers like 40 points a game and 10 assists. I’m sure the Clippers will be happy to bring their “lob city” style of play to Miami to spice up the game. The Clippers seem to be lacking defense but with their new coach Doc Rivers, they should be ready for Miami. Chris Bosh is expected to come back this Thursday so that will be good for Miami and if LeBron and Wade bring their energy and explosiveness to the game; the Clippers will struggle. The game will be aired on TNT at 7:00 PM.
