As Celtics fell apart late once again and are on the threshold against Heat after losing Game 2. Celtics will now have to try move up in the series and win the next game, While the Heat is heading home after winning two straight games and securing a 2-0 lead. They’re now just two wins away from an NBA Finals berth.

Here are the four takeaways as the series moves to Miami :

1. In the final stretch, the Celtics made the debatable decision to abandon Robert Williams and Derrick White. White played strong defence and made three of his five 3-point tries. Williams, on the other hand, was a component of a dangerous pick-and-roll combo that the Heat were unable to effectively stop using man-to-man or zone defence.

2. Game 2, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo each contributed, but Miami also received a significant boost from a couple of bench guys. Boston’s bench was outscored by Caleb Martin (25 points) and Duncan Robinson (15), who together scored 40 points. They both added three triples and hit a total of 17 of 25 from the field. For Miami, both made multiple clutch shots; without them, this victory probably wouldn’t have been possible.

3. One of the main causes of the Celtics’ difficulties in this year’s playoffs is Al Horford, who has had difficulty on both sides of the court from the start. The Celtics anticipated one of the NBA’s top 3-point shooters during the regular season to continue making 3-pointers in the post season. On Friday, he shot 1-for-5 from the field and 0-for-3 from behind the arc. But, due to the non performance of Al Horford, Celtics have suffered hugely.

4. Moving ahead in the series, the Celtics will depend more on Jayson Tatum in the fourth quarters. Tatum was kept without a field goal in the last minute of Game 2 for the second consecutive game, and the Celtics cannot win with that kind of play. If the Celtics hope to rally, they need to figure that out immediately.
