With Dwyane Wade out, Chris Bosh turned in the aggressive performance Miami coach Erik Spoelstra wanted to see.
Bosh scored 21 points to help the Heat beat the Charlotte Bobcats 98-92 in a preseason game Tuesday night.
LeBron James added 10 points and eight assists for the Heat (4-2), who gave Wade the night off. Ray Allen added 15 points off the bench for Miami, which shot 51.5 percent and hit 11 3-pointers.
Bosh went 8 for 12 from the field with seven rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 25 minutes.
''It doesn't matter what position you're playing. It's playing big, playing athletic and playing long at your position, and he did that tonight,'' Spoelstra said. ''He was a presence. He was aggressive to the rim. He was really our only threat consistently in the paint and at the rim, and he'll have to continue to provide that for us.''
Bosh was coming off a six-point performance in Saturday's victory over San Antonio.

NBA.com reported the league will announce Wednesday a change in the All-Star balloting. Fans will vote for three frontcourt players rather than two forwards and a center.
Under the old rules, it had remained to be seen where a media selection...
The San Antonio Spurs won their first NBA championship in a lockout shortened season and then Lakers coach Phil Jackson famously labeled it an asterisk championship. The Lebron James era of the Miami Heat‘s first championship also came during a lockout shortened season. Clearly one of the writers on the ABC comedy, “Happy Endings” has [...]
NEW YORK -- Centers will no longer be guaranteed a spot in the NBA All-Star game.
NBA.com is reporting that the league will announce a change to its All-Star ballot on Wednesday, removing the center position. Fans will be required to vote for three frontcourt players, instead of two forwards and a center.
The change makes sense with fewer teams relying on a traditional center anymore...
