No matter how many points they fall behind by, the Heat are never totally out of a contest, and Game 2 was another example why.
Miami trailed at the half 60-47 as it had major issues at both ends of the floor.
But as they had all through the postseason, the Heat turned up the thermostat in the second half, especially on the defensive end.
Although they may have a little less talent on paper, the Heat have now have put a stranglehold on the series. In doing so, they’ve put the Celtics’ dream of an 18th NBA championship in serious jeopardy.
