Chris Bosh again to come off bench for Heat in Game 6

Everybody talked about how Chris Bosh was not on the court for the Heat in the fourth quarter of Game 5. I bet he is in Game 6.

But he will not be there at the start.

Bosh will come off the bench again for the Heat in Game 6, coach Erik Spoelstra said and the official Miami Heat twitter account announced. Udonis Haslem and Shane Battier will start (along with Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James).

What I take away from all this — Bosh isn’t healthy yet. That was clear at points the way he was involved in some plays in Game 5, although he certainly gave them a real lift at points on the boards and with the threat of his shot. If this were anything but a key Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals he’d be sitting, resting. But the Heat need everything they have for this game, down 3-2 there is no margin for error.

We’ll see what Bosh can give. Just not when the game tips off.

    Bosh looked good in the last game. Second unit gonna need some options when either Star gets a rest.

    good luck, Heaps

    beat or weep

    I think that the Heat will win by 19.

    LOL excellent prediction mungman but for real wtf Celtics can we at least play hard when we lose?! It seemed like we just didn’t even want it tonight. And it was so obvious that LBJ did. Kudos to him and the Heat they played excellent ball and did exactly what they had to do.
