Chris Bosh has taken the back seat to Lebron and Wade no doubt but that may only be for a matter of time. Bosh has been clicking from all cylinders as of late and he's really looking like he's playing his best basketball in a Heat uniform. Eleven games into the season, Bosh has lead the Heat in scoring four times in the first eleven games while shooting a career high 55% from the field. His efficiency has complemented the Heat as Lebron was quoted (by NBC's probasketballtalk) showing his appreciation for the big man.
“He’s such an impact to our team, so efficient,” James said. “He gets his points so quietly, makes jumpshots, gets to the free throw line, makes things happen for our team and we all feed off of that.
Bosh is second on the Heat in scoring at 19.6 points per game which is his highest average since joining the team. Coach Erik Spoelstra also didn't hold back his appreciation either, as he labeled Bosh as the Heats most important player.
“He is our most important player, and he’s as steady and consistent as he always has been for the last two and a half years,” Spoelstra said. “He makes it look easy and he makes it look quiet, and yet he’s so impactful in the game
Chris Bosh is on pace to making his eighth straight All-Star game. Bosh's efficiency has been a bonus for the Heat as they're averaging a league high 103.5 points per game. In three games with no days rest (2nd game on a back-to-back), Bosh is averaging 26 points per game on 65% shooting. In the Miami Heat's eight wins, Bosh averages 21.4 points per game on 60% shooting while in three losses, only 15 points per game on 42% shooting.
