Who saved Miami’s bacon at end of Game 6? Chris Bosh.

At shootaround on Tuesday before Game 6, Chris Bosh said that hot shooting Spur Danny Green wasn’t going to get clean looks at threes.

Then, with the Spurs having one last shot in overtime to tie the game, Bosh made sure his words were good by blocking a Green desperation three to tie the game.

And that was really the least of Bosh’s plays in the closing moments of the game — the least discussed, least respected member of the “big three” saved the Heat’s title chances.

Chris Bosh saved the Heat’s season.

“CB made some unbelievable plays tonight,” LeBron James said after the game.

It was Bosh who grabbed the offensive-rebound off LeBron James missed three (over Manu Ginobili), then Bosh found Ray Allen backpedaling for a corner three, hit him with the pass and Allen knocked it down.

He had a hustling bucket in overtime, outrunning everyone down the court and getting a pass from LeBron James to score a bucket.

With just 33 seconds left in overtime and Miami up one it was Bosh who got switched on to Tony Parker, and Parker tried a little step-back that Bosh recovered on and blocked.

Then he blocked Green to ice the game.

Miami is going to be playing in Game 7 Thursday night at home. And they can thank Chris Bosh for that.

It’s hard to find a new low for defense in an NBA All-Star Game.

But Stephen Curry was laying down on defense. Literally.

The result was a Giannis Antetokounmpo dunk and Curry ending up in the highlight anyway.

Hey, DeAndre Jordan, where was this Saturday night during the Dunk Contest?

The Clippers’ big man threw down an off-the-backboard alley-oop from Russell Westbrook during the All-Star Game Sunday that was better than anything he did on Saturday night. Enjoy
