Celtics, NBA Twitter react to Boston’s 127-102 beatdown of the Miami Heat in Game 2

·5 min read

The Boston Celtics showed up to Game 2 of their East finals series with the Miami Heat healthier and with a chip on their shoulders after getting waxed by the Heat in Game 1 without veteran Celtics Marcus Smart and Al Horford available to play.

The game started with a hot Miami run that put Boston down by as much as 10 points in the game’s first frame but saw the Celtics respond massively to destroy the Heat in the subsequent three quarters to win the game in a 127-102 blowout. Now, with the series knotted up at 1 game each, the Eastern Conference semifinals shift to Boston’s home court of TD Garden.

NBA and Celtics Twitter took to the league’s unofficial social media site to talk about the brutal beatdown Boston delivered to the Heat — let’s take a look at what they had to say.
