    I think people forget that Butler missed 2 games last year in the ECF. I think if not for that, it's a good chance they would've ended up in the finals. Butler's ability to lead and extract the best play from the others is remarkable. Also, you gotta give major props to Spoelstra. I'm really enjoying this year's playoff scene. It's been great for basketball.

      The Mavs were the third seed. Miami are the 8th... Don't get me wrong, what Dirk did that season was nothing short of legendary. But if Jimmy and the Heat can actually pull this off... Probably one of the "greatest rings" ever won, in any sport

    As a Celtics fan, I was worried going into this series because I saw what the Heat could do and I knew they weren't to be ignored. I've just been blown away by HOW good they were. It's going to be really hard for us to dig ourselves out of it, we're a good road team so I think we'll take Game 3 in Miami and from there it'll be a competitive series, but it's really going to be hard. Miami is a solid team and they deserve to make it to the NBA Finals if they can finish us off. A lot of respect to them coming from where they did, the Play-in and even losing to Atlanta when everyone wrote them off, and getting this lead in the Conference Finals. Let's see where it goes from here.

      Boston is good enough to win both in Miami. But now the task is to beat Miami 4/5......and that's tough. Butler gets all the press, but Martin won that game tonight

      鈥婡VonJayexactly. Mazullo's coaching inexperience is showing. The heat are playing in a system that's getting most of their shooters going. But Boston is still so heavily reliant on Tatum and Brown. And it doesn't seem like Mazulla runs any plays to make life easier for the 2(not that I've seen)

If they come with the right mind set . Boston got to play with some hard . I believe this is what Boston needs to wake up and play some ball . The key in beating Miami is don't let up on them when you have a lead

    I like how the Heat plays. Reminds me of old school basketball where you play solid defense and run your offense through Michael Jordan...uh hum....I mean Jimmy Butler. Keeping the game really simple! Defense still wins championships! And Miami Heat is proving it to be so. Go "Air Butler!!!

    There was a couple times this game I thought Boston might run away with it. The Heat are different. They have a mental toughness that's rare in this modern era of basketball. I saw the Suns pretty much give up after getting down to the Nuggets. The Heat could have easily packed it in and been happy to go home with a 1-1 tie.
    With that said, I need Bam to step it up. I love the aggression he came out with but he missed a lot of shots near the basket. If he starts to make those consistently, the Celtics are going to have a hard time.

    • Joshua Anderson
      Joshua Anderson 4 miesi臋cy temu +3

      No the Celtics are already having a hard time. If bam plays better they're done. I mean they might be anyway. But for sure if bam ups it and everyone else stays good

    • Lucky889 S

      It's tough when Bam needs to play Horford and Williams alone. Big Man Zeller needs to step up more. So it's Bam has played like a monster, but he needs help

    • Joshua Anderson

    Kenny Smith made the most salient point here. Notwithstanding that Brown has been awful, and Mazzulla is clearly over his head, Boston's auxiliary players are getting outplayed by Miami's. There is no way anyone thought Vincent, Martin, Strus, and Robinson would punk Horford, Smart, Brogdon, and White.
    You add the spectacular play of Jimmy, and his clutch hoops all playoffs long, and this Heat team is much better than they appear on paper. Butler and Spo's leadership is also vastly superior to Tatum and Mazzulla. Now that doesn't mean this series is over but Boston has no chance if Brown doesn't show up and Smart and Horford are useless in their offense. They can't iso ball with Tatum and win 4 times, not happening.

    • Lucky889 S
      Lucky889 S 4 miesi臋cy temu

      Err maybe you need to credit Heat defense strategy? They neutralize Brown for 2 games, the more consistent player than Tatum. Then, smart, horford, brogdon, white follow soon, because they're mostly role players, can't take over games when needed

    Completely disagree with Charles that game 3 is a must win. I actually think him pushing that mindset on his team led to them being deflated and losing to Houston.
    The goal needs to be: win *one* of your home games - 3 OR 4. All you need is to win one. If The Celtics storm back with a win the next game, you cant let that zap the team's confidence. You need to say, "Okay they took this one? Well we're taking the next one"

      I think Jimmy didn't wanna stay either. He saw the choking and carefree genes in Embiid, Ben. Just like what he saw in KAT. That's why he had fights in those 2 locker rooms, because he sees no dog in their franchise player

    • Joshua Anderson
      Joshua Anderson 4 miesi臋cy temu

      @kid melo no I don't. Jimmy main complaint was about Brett brown and Ben Simmons and to a lesser extent embiid. They didn't pay Tobias over him. He didn't want to stay and bailed. That's why the sign and trade. Jimmy got a bigger contract than the heat could give him if he left and the sixers for at least something back for Jimmy.

I鈥檝e said it before if we go up 3-0 it鈥檚 a sweep or game 5. But if we lose game 3 it鈥檚 going to be game 6 or 7 series. We gotta deflate any hopes in game 3 for them.

      Part of the playoffs is just getting more rest. The Heat have played a lot fewer games than the Celtics and had a couple more days rest after their last series than the Celtics had. Just being the fresher team is usually good for one win in a series. The Heat have a real chance to sweep going home up 2-0, while I do not think the Nuggets win both games at LA. That said, Nuggets have a great starting five who are all in their prime and Jokic and Murray are the real deal guys who can just decide they want the Nuggets to win now. Heat will not beat the Nuggets on the boards either, so baring the Heat shooting over 50% from three like they did game one against the Celtics, gonna be very hard to beat the Nuggets.

    • Polo Don

    • electro pyro
      electro pyro 4 miesi臋cy temu +6

      @Polo Don and yet Miami posts legitimate depth in their own regard. It's time we stopped looking at their draft positions and start looking at them for their skills. Caleb Martin came off the bench and outplayed jaylen brown tonight. Max Strus and Gabe Vincent are more players who are huge on both ends of the floor for Miami. Even Duncan Robinson came back to get minutes and give you efficient scoring off the bench every now and then. kyle Lowry and Kevin love are former champions. And above all else, if the bucks couldn't contain butler, something tells me that once Gordon is off butler, he'll feast. If butler and jokic can cancel each other out, Miami needs to neutralize Jamal Murray. TLDR: So basically, Miami has maybe a...3% chance of winning? Oh wait...
