that only happened once - come on, we dindn't lose the game there, and it's not like we don't get our share of stupid continuations ... It's not like Magette really fouled Moon on that alley-hoop attempt to Bargnani ...

And I don't think you can blame what happened to Bosh on help defense, the last two possesions, they ran isolation plays, everybody was on the other side of the floor. You can blame it on mitchell for putting Bosh on thornton when moon would have been a better choice (on the other hand, you can't have Bosh guarding kaman either). But in the end we're talking about our franchise player - the one who's supposed to dominate both ends, and who is paid 25% of our payroll.

If you need to provide help defense when he's defending a ROOKIE, not even a top one - then maybe the problems lie somewhere else. And no, it's not like played great defense lately, and he had a bad game. Everybody has bad games, but Bosh is a poor defender. He might have good games once in a while, but overal he's at least below average.
