The Miami Heat forward Jae Crowder reacted to facing the Los Angeles Lakers in Black Mamba jerseys after winning Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
According to Crowder, all the talk that surrounds the jerseys and how the Lakers always win wearing them gives additional motivation.
“You’re hearing how they’re putting the black jerseys on and sh– and how they haven’t lost a game in those and people start talking about that. That is motivation, and it’s always going to get under your skin a little bit,” Heat forward Jae Crowder told Yahoo Sports after Miami spoiled L.A.’s celebration plans with a 111-108 victory. “You obviously funnel that in the right direction and use it as motivation and it definitely helped tonight.”
After winning Game 5, the Heat are trailing 2-3 in the series. Game 6 and potential closeout game for the Lakers will take place tonight.
