From the opening tipoff to the final buzzer, Game 3 of the NBA Finals for the Miami Heat was nothing short of a disaster.
The San Antonio Spurs were on point shooting the basketball for 48 minutes, dominating the defending NBA champions in dramatic fashion at the AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday night, winning 111-92.
Heat forward Chris Bosh didn’t hold back when describing Miami’s performance during an afternoon scrum on Wednesday.
“It was probably the worst game we’ve played together,” Bosh told the media, via Bleacher Report’s Ethan Skolnick. “It was a collective funk. Just everything.”
He may be true in his assessment. The Spurs broke an NBA Finals record by shooting 75.8 percent from the field in the first half. They finished the game shooting 59.4 percent.
As far as it being one of Miami’s worst games, Bosh didn’t beat around the bush when describing just how bad things were, via Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun.
“Honestly, we lost trust in each other. It was disappointing to see.” Chris Bosh on watching the film. “Worst game of the season.”

According to ESPN Stats and Info, Bosh had nine points on a perfect 4-of-4 shooting, but he only received 12 offensive touches all game. This comes on the heels of Bosh getting 39 touches in Game 1 and another 40 in Game 2.
Game 4 of the series goes down on Thursday night. In the 2013 NBA Finals when the Spurs and Heat squared off there, both teams alternated wins until the Heat took Games 6 and 7 to win their second-straight championship.
Bosh and company better hope that’s the case one year later in 2014, otherwise they’ll be in a world of hurt trying to come back from a 3-1 deficit.
