Chris Bosh dusts off power game
By Israel Gutierrez
SAN ANTONIO -- Chris Bosh had just walked away from the postgame podium, done explaining how he closed out Game 2 with a 3-pointer and a driving dish to Dwyane Wade, done explaining how he ignores criticism, done praising LeBron James for being unselfish in all scenarios.
And then Bosh admitted he, himself, was selfish on this night.
Asked if he was just looking for his shot a little bit on a night when he unleashed his entire repertoire in scoring 18 points for the second straight game, Bosh laughed and offered this in what sounded like a sarcastic tone:
"Yeah, I'm just looking for mine a little bit."
No, but seriously.
"Sometimes, in this offense, the coaches give me the freedom to be aggressive and make the right plays," Bosh said. "Coach told me, 'I like your aggressiveness. Keep being aggressive.' I was like, 'Aight.'
"You tell me once, you don't have to tell me anymore. So I just wanted to keep it up."
