The Miami Heat has possibly their worst performance of the 2012 NBA Playoffs on Friday night, losing Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals 101-91 to the Boston Celtics. Kevin Garnett dominated the Heat with 24 points and 11 rebounds, and Miami's small lineups were ineffective, which leads to the question of when might injured Heat big man Chris Bosh return. SB Nation's Tom Ziller captured LeBron James' thoughts on Bosh's return in his postgame comments:
"We don't know when Chris will be back. We're not going into the next game hoping that he's going to be there or whatever the case may be. We've got to prepare like he's not playing. We'll prepare for Game 4 like he's not playing."
Game 4 will be played Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET in Boston, with Game 5 to be played at 8:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday in Miami.
