Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra didn’t point to injuries for losing in the First Round vs. the Boston Celtics (lost series 4-1).

(via Miami Heat):

“First of all, we’re not going to put this on the fact that we’ve had some injuries. Let’s not take anything away from Boston, they’ve been the best team in basketball all season long. In this series in four of the games, they played as such. That had nothing to do with the injuries, it had nothing to do with guys that are available or not available, they played very good basketball and they probably had something to motivate them even more against us, but they played at a high level. I will not watch one minute of their games, but they’ll probably do this to several teams from here on out. They’ve got a very good team, they know what they’re doing, and they deserve this one.”
