Lets start with the bigs first. Bosh is now the Center for Miami and will be matched up with both Howard and Gasol. Last season Bosh in one game vs the Lakers
Bosh avg 15pts 8rebs 1ast 54%fg 4 personal fouls
in 35 mins.
Last season vs Howard in 4 games
Bosh avg 16.5ppg 8.3 rpg 1.3apg 54% 3.5 Personal fouls per game.
In that same stretch D12 avg 19.8ppg 18.8rpg
1.3bpg 1.8spg 2.3 personal fouls per game.
Pau one game vs Bosh last season put up 26pts
8 rebs 2ast 1blk 1 person foul in 37 mins 11-19 fg
Two things are clear when looking at the stats. 1)Bosh gets his points on a good fg% vs both our guys. 2) He has trouble defending both Howard & Gasol. avging almost 4 fouls.
Kobe 28.5ppg 50%fg 37% from 3pt
Wade in one game 16pts 4rebs 5ast 41% 25% from 3pt 6 fouls
Nash 9pts 5rebs 10ast 7 turnovers 57% fg 50% from 3pt
in 34 mins
Chalmers vs Nash 1pts
2rebs 8ast 5stls
0%fg (0-3) %3pt in 2 fouls 32 mins
Chalmers vs Lakers 12.5ppg
2rpg 4apg 2spg 38%fg 46% from 3pt 2.5 fouls
Things to gather from this 1)Kobe is still very effective vs Miami. 2)Chalmers is effective vs LA but struggles offensively when he has to defend Nash. 3)Nash will force Miami to give Dwight & Pau room to work in the paint. 4)Nash was effective but obviously Miami was able to give more defensive attention to him (7 to ) Nash will have an easier time now that he's on a team with talent.
Jamison has been pretty effective vs Miami

Shane vs Lakers 9ppg 29% from 3pt 33mpg
Miller 4.5ppg 50% from 3pt 16.5mpg
Things to take away from this: 1)Meeks and Jamison has had success vs Wade & Bosh now they should spend most of their time against Haslem & Allen. 2)Both shot respectable % from 3pt.
