We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here's a look at some enemy chatter from Miami.
The Miami Heat hit their lowest point of the postseason on Tuesday night but one young child was there to provide a "glass is half full" assessment despite the demoralizing circumstances.
As the Heat walked off the American Airlines Arena court, having lost Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals to the Boston Celtics 94-90, a young child's voice was picked up by television cameras offering excited encouragement.
The child repeatedly said "Good job! Good effort!" while clapping as LeBron James, Ronny Turiaf and Shane Battier headed for the locker room after falling behind the Celtics 3-2 in the series. The Heat conceded homecourt advantage with the loss and are now staring down a possible close-out Game 6 set for Thursday night at TD Garden.
Naive as this child's reaction is, at least he brought some energy to the arena. You can't say the same for the other 19-thousand people in the building.
