Chris Bosh drains three to beat Trail Blazers (VIDEO)

Dec 29, 2013, 1:34 AM EST

Sorry Blazers fans, but this is what your team has been doing to other fan bases all season long.

Portland has hit a lot of big shots this season, this time it happened to them. Miami was down two with 7.7 seconds left after some Nicolas Batum free throws. Dwyane Wade got the inbounds pass and drove right off a Chris Bosh pick, drew both Batum and Bosh’s man LaMarcus Aldridge, then threw a blind backwards pass to Bosh, who had time to collect the ball, gather himself and sink the game winning the three over Damian Lillard and Wes Mathews as they close out.

Then LeBron James covered Bosh with his jacket, ala James Brown.

Bosh led Miami with 37 points. This is a big win for the Heat — a road win over a quality opponent and they did it with LeBron in street clothes.

    breaking news: bosh has a jump shot

      That 3 was dirtyness

        I want Bosh in Chciago

    random, but bosh looked really cool after hitting that shot.

      Everytime I look at him all I can think of is a turtle that’s lost its shell. I guess after he hit that shot he did kind of look like a really cool turtle without its shell.

    Bosh knows how to TCB when LBJ sits. He hit a game tying triple to force OT against Atlanta in 2012 (no James, no Wade). He hit a game winning three against San Antonio last year (no James, no Wade). He hit another game winning three tonight (no James).

    He’s averaged 31 points and 11 rebounds in those games. Yeah, it’s a genuine Big 3.

    I’m so happy when Bosh gets his moments. People like making him a punch line but he’s a proven basketball player, he just happens to be playing with two hall of famers.

    • gofinsgoheatfloria - Dec 29, 2013 at 8:18 AM

      and if either of those two hall of famers were Shaq of 2006, Bosh would be scoring at least as well from the 4 as he did in Toronto; as it is, he has to spend a good deal of time in the middle against heftier guys. And it’s high time to drop the “soft” label. He took an elbow to the mouth against Atlanta a few days ago that needed 8 stitches on his lip, and he came back – without making any kind of scene about the missed flagrant-2 call AFAIK.

      • bougin89 - Dec 30, 2013 at 9:29 AM

        The “soft” label comes from him having games where he is brutal as a rebounder. When you’re 6’11 and as athletic as Bosh it would be almost hard not to get at least 5 rebounds every single game. He is still a very capable offensive player and an alright defender depending on the matchup.

    and this is all Portland will be until they manage to get defensive. fun to watch but a pretender. and to think this was without the king.

    • thezclan - Dec 29, 2013 at 5:19 PM

      Taking into consideration that Portland was initially projected as a team to battle for just making a playoff spot, I’ll take what they have accomplished so far this year. It has been surprising to see how quickly this team’s chemistry has come together. We have also been very fortunate to not have any major injuries so far this season (knock on wood).

      That being said, we realize that we still have a ways to go before we can put ourselves up with the likes of the Heat, OKC, and the Spurs.

      I can accept a 1 point loss to the Champion Heat with or without LeBron…

    People seem to forget that he averaged about 24 and 11 when he was in Toronto and his production has taken biggest hit since joining with LeBron and Wade. That doesnt mean he has became worse player.

    • fanofthegame79 - Dec 29, 2013 at 12:07 PM

      Exactly! He had his role changed dramatically and he has become the third option on a highly talented team – can’t fault him for that. And he’s stepped up so many times when the Heat needed him to. Good for him!

    Great win!! I will be honest! I thought the blazers was going to blow them out considering that LeBron wasn’t playing and that the heat are a little banged up! But that’s the heart of a champion!

    Mario Chalmers deserves a little love for his triple 9.

  11. leahcima1 - Dec 29, 2013 at 9:30 AM

    Just in case cantonjerk0 has the guts to read this article, “Chris Bosh is 7-for-10 in his career on potential game-tying or go-ahead 3-point attempts in the final 10 seconds of the 4th quarter or OT.”

    Its hard to hate the Heat at times. They act like a real team.

  13. goldmember21 - Dec 29, 2013 at 12:54 PM

    I love turtles

  14. danmarinos1stlovechild - Dec 29, 2013 at 4:26 PM

    That one’s for all the haters who say they ain’t real and got no heart!
    And I love turtles too!!!
