The Boston Celtics were frustrated after dropping Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals series versus the Miami Heat.

Right after the game, Marcus Smart was heard yelling to his teammates in the locker room. Jaylen Brown, who was almost a non-factor until the fourth quarter in Game 2 having just eight points, spoke on Smart’s reaction after another discouraging loss for Boston.

“That’s why we love Marcus – he plays with passion, he’s full of fire… We need that. There are ups & downs with families, but we embrace each other for who we are. We gotta take that same fire and add it to Game 3,” Brown said, per ESPN’s Rachel Nichols.

Brown scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter to keep the Celtics in the game. Game 3 of the series between the Heat and the Celtics will take place on Saturday.
