Spoelstra: Celtics ‘put us in our place’ in Miami’s blowout loss to Boston

This was not your typical game outcome between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat, and Heat head coach Eric Spoelstra made it clear that he knew it postgame. Speaking to the media on Boston’s 143-110 drubbing of Miami, the Miami coach shared his thoughts on how the outcome was so lopsided.

What went wrong is we faced a very potent offensive team that’s been doing this for several months now,” he said via the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn. “It was a humbling night, that’s for sure. They put us in our place, and you do have to respect the body of work they’ve done so far in this season.

“They’re the No. 1 team in the league with that record, and they’re doing it on both ends of the court,” added Spoelstra.

“They don’t miss many moments, offensively,” he continued. “If somebody is open, they make you pay for that. You have to be really intentional and disciplined and intelligent offensively over and over and over because of that firepower.”

“That’s the standard. We understand what the top record in the East looks like and we have some work to do, and that’s what we’ll do.”
