Chris Bosh virtuoso performance in the third quarter of Friday's victory against the Bucks was a welcomed reversal of a downward trend for the power forward.
While his efficiency has remained steady for much of the season, Bosh overall production has taken a dip since the All-Star break. Before Friday, he was averaging 16.1 points per game during the Heat's winning streak. Against Milwaukee, Bosh had 13 points in the third quarter alone.
LeBron James made a point of getting Bosh involved immediately at the beginning of both halves and Bosh's smooth shot did the rest. He led the Heat with nine points in the first quarter and was 5 of 5 from the field and 2 of 2 from three-point range in the third quarter. During that period, Bosh converted the first four-point play of his career.
Bosh finished with 28 points against Milwaukee. Expect LeBron to put the ball in Bosh's hands early against the Raptors, his old team. Here's Bosh's shot chart from Friday:
