Miami Heat star Bosh admits: "We suck"

Miami Heat star Chris Bosh has pulled no punches in his assessment of another disappointing loss for the reigning NBA champions.

Saturday's 105-95 defeat to the lottery-bound New Orleans Pelicans - which came courtesy of another superb night from second-year forward Anthony Davis - at King Smoothie Center was the Heat's seventh defeat in their last 11 games and Bosh - one of head coach Erik Spoelstra's so-called 'Big Three' - was clearly riled as the team's poor run of form continued.

"We suck," the 30-year-old was quoted by ESPN after being held to just 12 points on 5-10 shooting.

"We need to turn it around. There's no passion. There's nothing."

Although writing off their chances of achieving an historic 'threepeat' for a team that boasts the considerable powers of four-time MVP LeBron James would be incredibly foolish at this stage of the season, at this time last year the Heat were in the midst of a formidable 27-game winning streak that ultimately gave them the confidence to go on and win a second-consecutive title.

Prior to the loss to the Pelicans, the Heat had also lost to Boston, Denver, Brooklyn, Chicago, San Antonio and Houston this month and even trailed for most of the narrow win over the Memphis Grizzlies at American Airlines Arena on Friday night.

Luckily for Miami, their closest rivals - the Indiana Pacers - are also working through somewhat of a slump right now after suffering their second loss in three games in Memphis on the second night of a back-to-back on Sunday.
