Miami center Chris Bosh’s recent slump appears to have affected his offensive confidence and production.

Bosh’s struggles have seen his scoring dip from 16.6 points per game in the regular season to 12.3 points per game in the playoffs. Bosh is shooting 44.9 percent from the field in the playoffs after shooting 53.5 percent during the regular season. And his shooting range has been dramatically with twice as many 3-point attempts per game as during the regular season.

“I’m struggling mentally. I’m in the process of figuring things out,” Bosh said. “Everything isn’t going to go you’re way all the time. That’s what overcoming things is all about.”

(bullet) — Matt Bonner’s college career at Florida still is getting him some adulation from Gator fans who double as supporters of the Heat.

“Yeah, any time here or in Orlando, there’s always a small Gator faction that even though I’m on the opposing team, they will give me a subtle ‘Go Gators’ or ‘Gator Chomp,’” Bonner said.
