It’s one of the things that makes the Heat such a tough matchup — their third offensive option is frighteningly good.
Chris Bosh got it going on Sunday night back home, taking it to Carlos Boozer and the rest of the Chicago Bulls, dropping 34 points on them. He got some space early, knocked down his shots (well, he missed his first three but he kept after it) and hit 11 of his last 13 shots. Contested or not, long jumper or dunk, once he got going he was a force.
It is one of the big challenges the Bulls face — they defend Bosh better with backup Taj Gibson, but Boozer had 26 points and 17 rebounds, so how do you sit him? The Bulls have some real questions to answer.
