With the series now tied up 2-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Miami Heat may be forced to bring back Chris Bosh whether he’s ready or not.
According to multiple sources, Bosh may be ready by Tuesday’s game in Miami barring any setbacks. Whether the rumors are true or not, still remains to be seen. More than likely, the Boston Celtics and the rest of the public may not know Bosh’s real status until game time.
In the mean time, Kevin Garnett torched the Miami Heat once again with his 17 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 blocks. Garnett has been dragging the Miami bigs to the perimeter with his outside shot and then punishing them in the interior with his inside post game. While KG may not command the same type of double team like he once used to, he can still dominate opponents if there’s single coverage. Yes, he’s still that good.
However, the biggest reason Miami may be forced to rush back Chris Bosh is Rajon Rondo. Rondo has been having a field day in the paint with his circus lay-ups and constant penetration and kick-out to Boston's three-point shooters. The Celtics hit a total of nine 3-pointers in Game 4.
Bosh has now missed a total of three weeks since his injury and has participated in some light workout drills on the court. If there are no further setbacks, Bosh may be ready to contribute a limited amount of minutes in Game 5. Whether Bosh plays 5 minutes or 25 minutes is speculative at this point, but one thing is for sure, a few minutes with Bosh is better than no minutes with Bosh.
