Here’s what they were saying at the podium and both locker rooms following the Celtics’ 102-91 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 2.
Video above includes Celtics coach Doc Rivers and player Ray Allen, and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and player LeBron James.
— Allen on what’s gone wrong the first two games:
“Offensively we have not played well. You have to give them credit. They are causing us to move the ball and put it in different places. We have to do a better job of attacking the basket. They are attacking us, but we are not attacking them.”
On what being down 2-0 means:
“Being down two games to zero does not scare any of us, or make us nervous. We have an opportunity to go home and play in front of our crowd and play good basketball.”
— Rivers on Glen Davis:
“We are not a one-on-one basketball team. Paul [Pierce] may be the only one that can beat guys on his own. It’s just not who we are. I thought Baby was aggressive. It is what it is.”
On relaxing before Game 3:
“Tomorrow I told them to go rest or golf or do whatever they want to do, just stay away from each other, stay away from film, and stay away from basketball. Just relax. We’ll get right back at it the next day.”
— Spoelstra on what his team has accomplished:
“This series is only getting started right now. We ultimately did what we were supposed to do.”
