Bosh has been out since Game 1 of Miami’s previous series with the Indiana Pacers. The Heat initially struggled in his absence, but the team has adjusted in recent games.
In Game 1 against the Celtics, Miami dominated for stretches. NBA analyst Charles Barkley was impressed enough that he said, ”I picked the Heat in five (games). I may have to change that to Heat in four. Boston has got no chance of beating those guys.”
