Did the Boston Celtics just end the rivalry with the Miami Heat?

Dating all the way back to when LeBron James was with the team during the Boston Celtics’ last era of contention, there has been an intense rivalry between the Miami Heat and the Celtics. The longstanding feud faded a bit as Boston and Miami rebuilt, but they both came back up at about the same time to make for some very intense games. Now, the Heat appear to be fading a bit again. Does this mean that the rivalry will die with it? CLNS Media reporter Bobby Manning welcomed Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald to the “Garden Report” podcast to talk it over. The pair get into plenty more besides; check it out for yourself in the clip embedded below.
