Chris Bosh, who declared that his Heat squad "sucks" these days because of the team's recent struggles, stepped up vs. the Trail Blazers with 15 points and a key block on a Damian Lillard shot which could have sent the game to overtime.

With the win, the Heat (48-21) are now just 2 games back off the Indiana Pacers (51-20) for the East's best record. Miami visits Indiana on Wednesday.
