San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) - The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs
With home-court advantage possibly on the line throughout the NBA playoffs,
Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra sat his two superstars LeBron James and Dwyane
Wade due to nagging injuries.
But the sometimes forgotten of the "Big Three," Chris Bosh, showed that he's
still a superstar too.
Bosh nailed a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left to lift the Heat to an
88-86 win over the Spurs.
Bosh, who finished with 23 points and nine rebounds, was 9-of-15 from the
floor for Miami, which has won back-to-back games since having its 27-game
winning streak snapped against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.
James played through a right hamstring strain suffered during the first half
of Friday's game against the New Orleans Hornets, but sat out the final frame
with the Heat comfortably in front.
Wade hurt his right ankle during Wednesday's loss against the Chicago Bulls,
but played Friday.
In a game against Miami early in November, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich
sent guards Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, along with forwards Tim Duncan and
Danny Green home prior to the contest. The NBA fined the organization $250,000
for the move. The Heat won that tilt, 105-100.
