Heat Fall to the Celtics, Drop to 5-4
"It's reality now. The chemistry isn't at the level of these good teams." So said LeBron James following the Heat's 112-107 loss the Boston Celtics Thursday night at the American Airlines Arena. The Heat have now dropped 13 of the last 14 regular season meetings to the Celtics, have fallen to 5-4 on the season and are 0-2 in their last two games on their home court. EVERYBODY PANIC!
This was supposed to be the game where they were going to come out and show that the opening night loss to Boston was a fluke. And after the embarrassing meltdown against the Utah Jazz two nights ago, the Heat was expected to come out guns blazing like, say, Billy The Kid. Instead, they came out, lit the fuse and the bomb blew up in their faces like, say, Wile E. Coyote.
