Perhaps it's a psychological move before the two teams face off Thursday night, but the Miami Heat are showing a lot of love for Derrick Rose.

According to Bulls.com, the Heat's Chris Bosh endorsed Rose for MVP following this afternoon's shoot around over teammate LeBron James, saying "I think it's close, but I think I would give it to Derrick if I were a voter."

And he's not the only Heat player hot on D-Rose. Juwan Howard also thinks Rose should pick up the award.

Dwayne Wade also gave Rose a lot of complimentary love, but went with James when asked to pick a favorite.

Rose's candidacy for the prestigious award has been picking up steam because of the Bulls successful record, and the fact he's had to play long stretches of the season without teammates Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah.
