Here are yesterday’s scores with each squad’s top performers.

The Heat’s Big 2?
Again the third component of the Miami Heat’s highly-touted Big 3 came up small during a huge game against an Eastern Conference contender. On Feb. 24 against the Chicago Bulls, Chris Bosh shot 1-18 for a total of seven points in a Heat loss. Last night Bosh was 5-for-15 from the floor and only scored 13 during an inexcusable defeat to the Magic. At one point in the third period, the Heat had a 24-point lead at American Airlines Arena in Miami.
