The Miami Heat will look to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their first round series against the Knicks on Thursday night, and they received some good news Thursday morning when Chris Bosh confirmed he would be able to make it to New York in time for Game 3. Bosh was still in Miami as his wife gave birth to the couple's first child early Thursday morning.
While it's been a long whirlwind day for the All-Star power forward, Miami coach Erik Spoelstra, speaking with the press prior to Game 3, announced that Bosh was expected to start. Via Brian Windhorst:
