Chris Bosh Moving Away from the Paint?
Overall as (LeBron) James has tried to play inside more this season, (Chris) Bosh has moved outside. That 3-pointer, for example, was already his sixth triple of the season, the same amount he had all of last season. He is shooting 53 percent so far this season, which would qualify for a career high if he kept it up. He was 7-of-12 on jumpers Tuesday.
“People say don’t fall in love with the jumper, but it loves me, so I love it back,” Bosh said. “Whatever this team needs me to do, I’m going to do it. We have guys that need to fill specific roles, and that’s what makes it a team.”
That’s a different tune from a year ago, when Bosh was discombobulated in his role changes. It had him having midnight chats on the team plane with James after a rough start and then a public plea for more touches after a midseason slump.
