MIAMI (AP) — Chris Bosh has been a slump like this before.

Granted, it was during his first week in the NBA.

A decade later and trying to win another NBA championship, Bosh is searching for rhythm. He has not reached double-figures in scoring in Miami's last four games, a streak the Heat want to end when they open the NBA Finals on Thursday against the San Antonio Spurs.

Bosh has been in an all-out slump, missing 26 of his last 34 shots from the floor during the Eastern Conference finals against Indiana. He went five straight games without reaching double figures as a rookie. He hasn't gone that long since.
