Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh would take title over win streak--Miami Herald

• Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole combined for 21 points, eight steals and seven assists Friday against Detroit, and their steady play hasn’t gone overlooked by teammates.

“They’ve come back and gotten better at their job,” Bosh said. “They’re giving us great minutes, not only getting us organized on offense, but taking the challenge on defense.”

Spoelstra said he played Cole in key fourth quarter minutes Friday because he “was creating some havoc defensively. We’re playing more point guard basketball this year than we have in the past.”
Dan Le Batard: With win streak, LeBron James and Miami Heat turn disdain into respect--Miami Herald
Miami’s three basketball stars came together specifically because they had not been able to advance beyond this Celtics franchise alone, and now there was some Globetrotter-style toying with Boston on the road and on the break. Dwyane Wade flipped the ball under his arm while facing the other basket, Norris Cole nonchalantly tossed a no-look pass in front of the rim, knowing what was on its way, these Heat players more confident than ever when James literally and figuratively has their backs. The sound of what came next — of the force, of the rim, of Terry’s body hitting the floor, of the gasping crowd, of the screaming announcers — echoed throughout the sport. It was the perfectly masculine punctuation for his play and his time, so much so that Heat reserve James Jones, who ought to be used to all this by now, sprung off the bench as if by ejector button, holding both hands to the side of his head like a man enduring something too loud or too much.
