Netease Sports reported on September 26:
On September 26, Beijing time, the Heat lost to the Celtics 108-121 away and failed to qualify for the finals.
The Heat was overturned in the first half with an advantage, allowing the Celtics to score 70 points in the second half. Coach Spoelstra also said: "We didn't work hard enough on the defensive end and we paid a price for it."
Schuyler also said that they respect the Celtics opponent, even if they get a 3-1 lead, "never think this series will be easy, we have to work hard to win."
Adebayor, who scored 13 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists on 5 of 11 shots, took the initiative to take responsibility after the game, saying that he let his teammates down, "It is my responsibility to lose. I played very badly. I can't do this anymore."
Butler also rushed to the back during the interview, "The responsibility should never be (Adebayor). Each of us is responsible, and everyone can understand it because we didn’t play the way we should be. You can't win the ball."
"Opponents are attacking, and we are no longer defending. This is never a good sign." He said.
Butler also said that in the next G6, the Heat will definitely be ready, "We will play better and win that victory."
It is worth mentioning that Hero, who scored 37 points in the last game, misfired today. He had almost no performance in the first three quarters and finally scored 14 points. He was also ridiculed by Pierce, a famous player in the Green Army. Pierce said that he is not a star. "I don't have 20 points per game. I can hardly say that a person is a star. How can I call him a star with 11 points per game."
