Spoelstra: Bosh will have bigger role in Game 6
Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra says that he might consider starting forward Chris Bosh for Game 6 against the Boston Celtics, according to ESPN.
Bosh played just over 14 minutes in Game 5 off the bench, registering nine points and seven rebounds. It was his first action since suffering an abdominal strain that forced him to sit out nine straight games.
Whether Bosh starts the game or comes off the bench, Spoelstra has every intention of giving the All-Star forward a larger role in a must-win game.
"I think he'll be able to handle a bigger load of minutes, and it'll be based more on how he'll feel during the game," Spoelstra said.
Bosh has averaged 13.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game through the playoffs, and the Heat are 5-1 in games that he has started. The Heat trail the Celtics 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.
