No Dwight? No problem as Rockets rally past Parsons, Mavs

Finally, after the Rockets had launched 3 after 3, putting up as many as any Rockets team has in any game, they found another way considerably closer to the rim.

Bosh's outside touch lifts Heat over Magic 99-92

The contrast in the middle was undeniable. On one end, Nik Vucevic was bulling his way to the rim, often with impunity. On the other end, Chris Bosh was lofting feathery jumpers, his effort more art form than muscle work. This time, the style points made the difference. With Bosh scoring 14 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter, stroking jumpers with even greater ease than Vucevic...
