Chris Bosh: Danny Green won’t be open in Game 6
The Miami Heat have their backs against the wall heading into Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green is a big reason for that. With six three-pointers in a Game 5 win on Sunday, Green set an NBA record with 25 three-pointers made in a playoff series. According to Chris Bosh, he will not be padding that achievement tonight.
Though Green is easily the NBA Finals MVP through five Games, Bosh insisted on Tuesday that Game 6 will be a different story.
Asked Chris Bosh how Danny Green has consistently found the open spots in Miami's D. Answer: "he won't be open tonight."

The Spurs have shot 44.2 percent from three-point range during the Finals, which is mostly due to Green shooting 65.8 percent. However, he has not been the only problem for Miami. The Heat have struggled to guard the perimeter and the Spurs have taken a 3-2 lead by playing inside-out basketball on offense.
Does Chris Bosh’s confidence mean he intends to switch out on Green quicker and not give him any open looks? That will be an incredibly difficult task for the big man, but he obviously feels that the Heat have made enough adjustments since Game 5 to lock Green down. Playing at home could help Miami, though they will be without a few very important fans thanks to Gregg Popovich.
