Best bet on the Tube


Chris Bosh has been telling the Miami Heat that he’s ready to play. The Heat seem ready to listen. And Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals ( 5:30 p.m., ESPN), which wouldn’t be lacking for drama with Boston and Miami tied at two games apiece, may have another significant layer of intrigue. Bosh’s status was upgraded to “day-to-day” by Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on Monday. Bosh has been out three weeks with a strained lower abdominal muscle. Boston will not be caught off-guard if Bosh plays. “We don’t have to do anything different,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “We’ve prepared every game like Bosh is going to play. And eventually, he will.” – AP
