HEAT Player Of The Game vs Cavaliers: Chris Bosh

New, comments

It wasn't the easiest game to pick one guy who played better than the others. The King and Flash both turned in solid efforts. For my money, when the game was on the line, number one came through in the clutch. Today's POTG: Chris Bosh.

Wade scored 20 in the first half, James fell one board and one assist short of a triple-double, Ray Allen scored his 24,000th point, and even the Birdman sunk a three-pointer and blocked three shots. Chris Bosh, however came out on top of a complicated algorithm designed just for this purpose.

In the first half, Miami had built a 19-point lead, only to watch it evaporate completely by the middle of the fourth quarter. Chris Bosh made a nice block to preserve Miami's then-six point lead.

Bosh went two-for-four in the first quarter, scoring five points with three rebounds and an assist. The second quarter would see him score 13 points on six-of-eight shooting with three rebounds to help Miami close the half with a 68-52 lead. After a third quarter which saw him score two points with two rebounds as the lead was cut down to four, he came back in the final period with two points and four boards.
