The Boston Celtics dropped another double-digit lead against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals series.
After another tough night, Marcus Smart was heard yelling in the Boston Celtics’ locker room. The Celtics’ head coach Brad Stevens was asked about the argument in his media availability.
“Guys were emotional, after a hard game, hard loss,” Stevens said. The Celtics couldn’t find an answer against the Heat’s zone defense in the second half.
They got outscored by 20 points (37-17) in the third quarter and lost a 17-point lead, after a great first-half performance.
The Celtics will have to find a way to win four of the possible next five games to reach the NBA Finals for the first time in 10 years.
