Chris Bosh promises to lay off three pointers vs. Spurs

In Game 1, Chris Bosh was 0-for-3 from three-point range (including a key miss late) but 5-of-8 from the midrange.

Lesson learned. In Game 2 Bosh didn’t take a three and was 3-of-6 from the midrange — he had a far more effective and efficient game.

In Game 3 Tuesday night, don’t expect to see Bosh beyond the arc on the offensive end.

“With this (Spurs) team, it seems like that’s what they want me to do so I’m not going to do it,” Bosh said after the morning shootaround Tuesday. “They want me to shoot threes. I could tell by looking at the film. So I really just changed it up”

What did he see on the film?

“Because nobody was closing out to me, and I’m like, ‘OK, if nobody’s closing out on me, that means they want me to shoot it.’ So I just wanted to get in an area where I could be more aggressive and kind of really work against that game plan they have,” Bosh said.

It’s a good rule of thumb that if you’re on the other team and Gregg Popovich’s guys are giving you the shot, it’s a bad shot.

The Heat showed a lot more discipline on offense in Game 2, not just during the run but all game long (they shot 51.2 percent in the first half). Do that again this game and it is much harder on the Spurs to keep up.

      Hey cantonjerk12. Loser girl, you’re back. You up for tonight’s game when two champions go at it for the gold?

        I take satisfaction in my personal accomplishments. I don’t have to depend on a sports team to bring me happiness. Only a sad loser like yourself really needs a heat win.

      If only Chris Bosh’s biggest fanboy would promise to lay off trolling…
