Bosh's Late 3 Lifts Short-Handed Heat Past Spurs
SAN ANTONIO (AP) Chris Bosh scored 23 points, including a game-winning 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining, and the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 88-86 on Sunday night with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and sitting out due to injuries.
Ray Allen had 14 points, Norris Cole added 13 and Mike Miller 12 for Miami (58-15), which swept the season series with San Antonio (55-18).
