“We’re not going down, we’re going to win this game tonight,” Bosh said. “We’re going to come, prepare like we need to do. Plain and simple, we’re going to win this game.”
Asked if Bosh was guaranteeing a victory, he opted not to put a stamp on his statement, but he certainly didn’t backpedal either.
“I don’t care about guarantees, we’re just going to win the game,” he said. “Take it like you want it.”
The Heat enter tonight's game with the Spurs down 3 games to 1, so I would be surprised if the Heat weren't going to play like it. I don't know if the passion of Chris Bosh is going to be enough to overpower the picture perfect basketball the Spurs have been playing lately, but we'll see.
LeBron James was quick to point out when asked about the Heat's chances of winning the championship being down 3-1 that history is broken all the time.
"Why not us? History is broken all the time," James said. "And obviously we know we're against the greatest of odds. No team has ever come back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals, but there was a point where no team came back from a 2-0. There was a point where no team came back from a 3-0. There was a point where no team came back from a 3-1 or 3-0 deficit in the ALCS, and then the Red Sox did it against the Yankees.
"So history is made to be broken, and why not me be a part of it? That would be great. That would be a great storyline, right? But we'll see what happens. I've got to live in the moment, though, before we even get to that point."
Game 5 of the 2014 NBA Finals is tonight at 8:00PM EST with the pre-game broadcast beginning at 7:30PM EST.
