MIAMI (AP) -Seeking a spark, the Miami Heat started Jason Kapono at small forward for Game 3 of their first-round series against the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.
Kapono replaced Eddie Jones, who was 1-for-7 from the field in the first two games - both Heat losses.
``He's the best shooter in the league, or one of them,'' Heat coach Pat Riley said of Kapono, who was the NBA's leading 3-point shooter this season, making 51 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc.
