Bosh the bomber? It was easy to understand why Bosh camped out around the three-point line during the conference finals. Indiana's Roy Hibbert was a menace in the paint and the Heat wanted to force him to step out of it. But against San Antonio, Bosh continued to shoot from deep. Bosh made 48.4 percent of his three-point attempts in the Eastern Conference playoffs but missed all four of his attempts in Game 1. Bosh is an excellent perimeter shooter, but is at his best playing pick-and-pop, not catching and shooting from beyond the arc. As good as Bosh is, San Antonio will live with those shots.
