Then, with the Spurs having one last shot in overtime to tie the game, Bosh made sure his words were good by blocking a Green desperation three to tie the game.
And that was really the least of Bosh’s plays in the closing moments of the game — the least discussed, least respected member of the “big three” saved the Heat’s title chances.
Chris Bosh saved the Heat’s season.
“CB made some unbelievable plays tonight,” LeBron James said after the game.
It was Bosh who grabbed the offensive-rebound off LeBron James missed three (over Manu Ginobili), then Bosh found Ray Allen backpedaling for a corner three, hit him with the pass and Allen knocked it down.
He had a hustling bucket in overtime, outrunning everyone down the court and getting a pass from LeBron James to score a bucket.
With just 33 seconds left in overtime and Miami up one it was Bosh who got switched on to Tony Parker, and Parker tried a little step-back that Bosh recovered on and blocked.
Then he blocked Green to ice the game.
Miami is going to be playing in Game 7 Thursday night at home. And they can thank Chris Bosh for that.
