NBA Finals: Chris Bosh's 3-Point Infatuation Fails the Heat in Game 1

MIAMI -- We've been hearing during telecasts throughout the playoffs that Chris Bosh has added the 3-point shot to his repertoire this season. In 74 games during the regular season, Chris Bosh took 74 3-point shots. He took one per game. In 17 playoff games, he's taken 35 attempts, which is double the rate he took them during the regular season. There's a reason he's taking a lot more in the postseason. He's reversed his long-range shooting fortunes during the playoffs. Even after an 0 for 4 night from beyond the arc in Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, the Miami Heat big man is still making 42.9 percent of his 3-point shots in the playoffs. It's a revelation of sorts for Bosh because he shot an anemic 28.1 percent from downtown in the regular season. It's simply not a shot he hits with great regularity, despite the small sample of success right now.
