The Miami Heat won Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday 109-93 to even their series with the San Antonio Spurs at two, so he can laugh about it now, but Chris Bosh had a rough couple of minutes there in the second quarter.
First Bosh was caught flopping as he was fighting Tim Duncan for position in the lower block. Just as Gary Neal was driving the lane, Bosh went flying as he pretended like he was savagely pushed by Duncan. Replays showed it was mostly an act. It paid off at the time; Duncan was called for a moving screen, giving the ball to the Heat, but Bosh will likely be hit with a fine from the league.
Then there was Bosh getting Duncan on a pump fake and driving to the basket for a monster dunk right before halftime. The only problem is Bosh went soaring a split-second too late, and the buzzer went off right before he threw down the jam.
You can see that video below:
Let’s take another look at his flop. You know what the dead giveaway is? His arms flailing.
As soon as the arms flail, you almost certainly know it’s an act.
Bosh still had 20 points, 13 rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in the win, so we can’t go too hard on him, but he still gets a c’mon man for both.Google+
