Chris Bosh will come off the bench

Chris Bosh will come off the bench tonight for Miami as Heat coach Erik Spoelstra starts Udonis Haslem at the center position. Spoelstra said he expects to play Bosh more minutes tonight.

“I’m way more comfortable [doing that],” said Spoelstra. “I don’t think we’ll be able to play him his normal load, particularly at the pace and how competitive and physical this series is.”

Spoelstra said his team is ready to try and stave off elimination in Game 6 Thursday night at TD Garden.

“We have a very confident group,” said Spoelstra. “We have a very stubborn group in there. Despite all the noise out there, we feel we should have won the last two games. We didn’t, and that’s the results, but we did enough good things to win. We know we can win in this building.”
