The Heat came out victorious from 14 points behind in Game 1.
The Celtics’ Jaylen Brown mentioned that several emotions were flying due to the loss of Game 2, which he believed that the team should have won. ESPN reported that the Celtics’ coach Brad Stevens had to sit down with Boston’s elite players to sort things out.
