The Miami Heat lost Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Boston Celtics and did not finish the series. The Heat now lead 3-2.

Erik Spoelstra, Miami’s head coach, did not see any similarities between these series and others when team blew 3-1 leads.

“I don’t think those series have anything to do with this. … We have great respect for Boston. We’re not expecting this to be easy. You have to earn it,” Spoelstra said, per Ben Golliver of Washington Post.
