Revolt took over Celtics after the defeat to Heat last wednesday, the 17th, at TD Garden, for game one of the eastern conference finals. Jaylen Brown It is Mark Smart they spoke to the press after the match and did not hide their irritation with the 123-116 defeat. Both insisted that the negative result was due to the drop in intensity that Boston presented from the third period onwards.

It is worth noting that in the first half of the match between Celtics and Heat, the team even had a 66-57 advantage and seemed to show a basketball that would give them victory. However, as with other opportunities this season, Boston let the intensity drop while Miami increased theirs. The consequence was a partial of 46 to 25 for the visitors.


The switch from a nine-point lead to a 12-point deficit took a toll on the Celtics, who were unable to come back. In conversation with journalists, Jaylen Brown detonated his posture in the match and also in the team. The Boston star was not satisfied with the intensity that the team showed in the second half of the match against the Heat.

It’s a decision. Just go out and play with a different mindset. We left very comfortable. It was almost like we were just playing a regular season game. It’s the Eastern Conference Finals. Like, come on. We have to play with more intensity than today. We just have to be better, including me“, vented.

In addition to him, another Celtics player who appeared angry and touched on the issue of intensity was Marcus Smart. He expected more from his teammates and downplayed the Heat’s great performance. According to him, Boston lost to itself from the moment it did not face the decision with the seriousness that was necessary.

The only thing we need to adjust is our intensity and apply it to the damn defense. That’s the only thing they changed. They didn’t change anything from the first half that they weren’t doing, they just increased their intensity and that’s it. There’s nothing tactical, just go out and protect your lane. They scored 46 points in that third quarter, went ahead, made us pay and led in the fourth quarter.“, he concluded. It is worth remembering that game two will take place this Friday, 19, at 21:30 (Brasília time).
