By his recent standards, Chris Bosh was somewhat off his game Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic, when he dared miss three shots at the Amway Center.

Bosh, after all, had missed just once in each of his previous two outings, leaving the Miami Heat center 18 of 23 from the field over the past three games, when factoring in Wednesday's 7 of 10.

"His motor has been much more consistent," coach Erik Spoelstra said, with the Heat now turning their focus to Saturday's rematch against the Magic at AmericanAirlines Arena, with each team in the midst of a two-day break. "That's what I noticed right from the get-go. He's running the floor. That's his advantage, every single night, is his speed, his quickness, his motor. And that's what he needs to focus on."

In addition to moving to a quicker beat, Bosh said he also has been moving to a wider variety of spaces on the floor, rather than settling for his trademark mid-range jumpers.

"I've kind of made an effort to kind of mix it up a little bit more, get down in the post, mix some paint touches," he said. "Guys have been finding me on the rolls a lot more. That's gotten me some easy buckets, and everything's not outside the paint.

"So, doing that a little bit, kind of helps me out and gets me in a good rhythm, and those 18-footers and 3-pointers go in."

Bosh has made a 3-pointer in each of the past three games, 3 of 5 from beyond the arc in those three, the ball whipping around to him just as it has been to the Heat's 3-point specialists.

"The ball will find him, in open areas, in open gaps," Spoelstra said. "We use the term all the time, 'The ball will find energy.' And when he's playing with that type of energy, the ball will find him.
