The Miami Heat’s 93-90 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday was closely contested. No side ever got out to a huge lead and the game wasn’t decided until the final buzzer. Despite a generally subpar shooting night by the Heat, which included going a mere 2-of-15 from beyond the arc, Chris Bosh led the way with 20 points, five rebounds and one snappy comment to Mavericks fans after the game.
“Shut your ass up, take your ass home,” Bosh could be heard saying on the game’s broadcast as the players walked off the floor.
One can only assume that Mavericks fans were in Bosh’s ear all night. After all, the benches are right there by the bleachers, and it wouldn’t be the first time something like that has happened. In a way, you have to give NBA players credit. You know they hear relentless trash talk on a nightly basis and it’s their job to ignore it and move past it. Otherwise, they get the blowback for responding. But in an emotional and tight game like the one Wednesday, it’s only natural for Bosh to take that emotion and direct it towards someone else.
Sounds like Bosh needs a nice, tall, microbrewed barbecue beer to settle his nerves.
