The Miami Heat got absolutely trashed last night in their game 3 loss to the San Antonio Spurs which saw them give away a great advantage in the NBA Finals, and Chris Bosh has admitted how badly the team played at home.
From the opening tip-off to the final buzzer when there were only trash minutes players on the court, Miami were awful and got played off the hardwood by a San Antonio team who seemed like they could do no wrong. The final score of 111-92 at the American Airlines Center was testament to just how far the Heat were off the pace when you consider how all the other matches had been relatively close.
Speaking to reporters after the loss, Chris Bosh was damning saying “It was probably the worst game we’ve played together. It was a collective funk. Just everything.”
And things didn't get any better once the team had come in for practice and watched the footage of the game to see where they went wrong. "Honestly, we lost trust in each other. It was disappointing to see." said Bosh after watching film according to Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun. "Worst game of the season."
Bosh's comments come across as a thinly veiled dig at his teammates for being too greedy with the ball and not getting it into his hands more often. And the stats are there too back it up. Looking at ESPN Stats and Info, you can see Bosh had nine points on a perfect 4-of-4 shooting, but he only received 12 offensive touches all game. This is in comparison to the power forward getting 39 touches in Game 1 and another 40 in Game 2.
Of course Bosh is going to be annoyed. All signs pointed to him having the hot hand but he just wasn't allowed to prove it because of his teammates lack of ball movement, which is pitiful when compared to a San Antonio side that are the best passers in the league.
