Brad Stevens held a late-night meeting with Celtics leaders in order to address the heated confrontation after the end of Game 2.

Stevens spoke with Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart to clarify the issues that led to that confrontation.

Boston dropped a 17-point lead in Game 2 ad suffered a painful loss to the Miami Heat (106-101). The team also turned the ball over 20 times.

Stevens also made it clear the squad has to integrate Gordon Hayward back to the lineup as smoothly as possible. Hayward could return to action in Game 3 after missing a month with an ankle injury.

Miami leads the series 2-0. Game 3 is on Saturday.
