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.

      He scored 30 in game 1.

    I thought he was a difference maker on defense too. I know people say he is soft sometimes and I tend to agree but yesterday he definitely was not soft. I don’t know why Boozer had to say anything. You know it was gonna fire him up for one game and what do you know he drops 34. I think Boozer was partially responsible by playing some weak defense as well.

      But didn’t mean to take away a dominant performance by Bosh. He was on fire shooting too.

    Bosh is killing the late defensive rotations – this series is Oooooover

    you just cant guard 2 of the best players in the NBA and have to worry about CB1 – that guy is a sniper. wonder when, and i sincerely mean when, the Heat are gonna win 73 games in a season

    ….next year they are only going to bring in better bench talent too…bibby will probably not be the starting PG; BigZ, JHoward, Magloire? gone….replaced by younger and better players.
