The only thing that's been keeping the Heat competitive is one man, Dwyane Wade. The Celtics have a problem in Wade. Yesterday, they let one man take on their entire team and win. It seemed like he was sick of waiting for the rest of his team to catch up and decided to take matters into his own hands. It's hard for me to picture the Heat locker room after the game. If all of the players were excited that they'd won a game, the fact must've been lingering in the back of their minds that, "Oh, Wade just gave us that one". He racked up 46 points and was 16/24 from the field. His 16 shots made were more than the next highest team member, Quentin Richardson, even attempted.
Boston has lost 6 of the last 7 games where it could've closed out a series on the road. In losing yesterday, the Celtics missed out on giving the fans a treat. A sweep would've made a statement. It would've been something hard to ignore. I'm not saying that they can't go on to succeed now that they haven't swept. But, I do think it would have been nice. As Doc said, when talking about if 1 out of 2 in Miami was good enough, "No, you gotta be greedy".
