Five Stars: Opening Night

Last night's game resulted in a 12-point Miami win. We'll take a look beyond the bottom line throughout the season in our "Five Stars" series. The number you see after each player's name is their GameScore, a metric predicated on his specific performance from last night and available at www.basketball-reference.com. First Star Chris Bosh – 24.2 Last night’s first star should be no surprise to those watching. He started out the night by hitting a corner three as he was falling out of bounds with two left on the shot clock, and didn’t slow down until the third quarter. Bosh finished the...

GameStream: Heat open the season with 107-95 win over the Washington Wizards

The Heat were energized early by strong play from Chris Bosh, sustained in the middle by Norris Cole, and capped off the win with Dwyane Wade closing it out. A great way to open the season! Here's all our coverage. The first play of the game was a sample of what was to come. After controlling the opening tip, the Heat stumbled to get a quality shot off. As the shot clock almost ran out, Chris Bosh found himself in the corner (Ray Allen's corner, by the way) and hoisted up a 3-pointer that saw nothing but net. Only problem is that they counted it as a regular basket. Although it was later...

A-Z of the new Miami Heat

Previews? No one has time for that! Here is my A-Z of the 2014-15 Miami Heat A is for Andre This week Andre Dawkins shot his way onto Miami's roster. The former Duke guard known predominantly as a shooter will be aiming to fill the void James Jones and Ray Allen left if he can earn minutes in the rotation. B is for Bosh No longer the sidekick, Chris Bosh has now reached the era of leadership. While he spent the past four years finding himself moving farther away from the basket, he will now be the go-to scorer while carrying the majority of on-court responsibility. Expect him to relish...

6 Days Till Sixers: Wait, Tickets Cost How Much?

The lack of winning isn't the only reason for all those empty seats. Sixers tickets cost entirely too much. The reason you're reading this particular article is because four years ago, I bought the Sixers 10-game plan. In 2010, the world turned upside down when LeBron James and Chris Bosh signed with the Miami Heat. When we found out they'd be in Philadelphia for the Sixers home opener, we decided that we had to go and see this new rock band of superstars live. We pretty quickly realized that the ticket prices would be outrageous for such a game, upwards of $60 a pop on the resale market,...

ReHeat: Heat vs Rockets

Here's an entertaining, quick look at last night's game in case you missed the final recap. Let's take a look at what you missed. FINAL SCORE: Miami Heat 90, Houston Rockets 85. So last night we got the Dwyane Wade we were hoping to see, packaged with the Chris Bosh we have become used to seeing. The question has never been if they could, but how often they can. If we are able to get that Big 2 performance consistently, the Heat can win 50. Here are some more reflections from the ReHeat. Shawne Williams will probably be starting come opening night even though Josh McRoberts could be ready....

Heat’s music playlist takes surprising turn

Most days when the media is allowed to view the tail end of Heat practice, hip hop blares in the gym while players wrap up their final shooting drills. Today was different. Instead of the usual music, the Heat closed out practice with a playlist that featured Linkin Park’s 2000 hit “Papercut” along with songs by Tom Petty and Johnny Cash. “I don’t know who picks it, but on Wednesdays we play different music,” Chris Bosh said as nearby teammate Chris Andersen sang along to “Folsum Prison Blues” while shooting 3-pointers. “We’re a very diverse bunch of guys. Sometimes you...

Bosh shows what Rockets’ offseason fuss was all about

MIAMI – Gentleman that he is, Chris Bosh at first seemed to hesitant to taunt the Rockets too much. But eventually he couldn’t help it. For a half, he was more solid than spectacular, save for a H-O-R-S-E shot that he flipped in off the top of the backboard. But as Dwight Howard and James […]

Chris Bosh reflects on loss to Cavs and upcoming Heat season

Chris Bosh reflects on loss to Cavs and upcoming Heat season

Bosh had a lot to say following Miami's preseason loss versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. In doing so, he explained where he feels Miami needs to improve, and how they will fare down the line. Following Saturday's preseason loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, it was made clear that the Miami Heat still has a lot of work to do in order to be prepared for the upcoming season. That's not to say Miami played poorly against the Cavaliers, (they were actually good and demonstrated a lot of heart in the final minutes), but rather to point out that preseason doesn't paint the clearest image of how...

Chris Bosh says Kevin Love in for "extremely frustrating" transition with LeBron James

Chris Bosh had to change his game to accommodate LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Will Kevin Love do the same for James and Kyrie Irving? Chris Bosh has been making some news while his Miami Heat prepare to take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers Saturday in Brazil. He doesn't seem all that excited to see the former teammate that he went to the NBA Finals with four times, winning two championships. And he is worried about Kevin Love, per The Sporting News: "It’s going to be very difficult for him," Bosh said of Love’s role. "Even if I was in his corner and I was able to tell...

Chris Bosh: The underrated rebounder

Is Chris Bosh a good rebounder? Here's what some advanced stats tell us about Chris Bosh's true rebounding ability. Old school NBA fans are quick to label Chris Bosh as "soft." When they were growing up, 6'11" centers were not midrange sharpshooters or standing in the corner shooting three-pointers. No, they were camped out in the paint on both ends of the floor. Old school fans want to see more Patrick Ewing, David Robinson, and Shaquille O'Neal type players. These criticisms are usually backed up by pointing out Bosh's rebounding numbers from his time with the Miami Heat. I mean, what...
