How Did the Celtics Fall So Far Behind the Heat?

The Heat have beaten the Celtics in 6 of their last 9 meetings as they've essentially secured a top-6 seed and left Boston in the play-in tournament despite their shared injury issues this year. Boston went behind by 20 points again in game two of their mini series in the second half despite Jimmy Butler going down midway through the game, with Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson cleaning up Jayson Tatum, Tristan Thompson and Marcus Smart with ease despite big nights from Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier. The Garden Report discussed how the Thompson signing, more failed development of young players and a better job by Miami's vets like Butler over Boston's like Tatum put the Heat among the growing list of teams in the east in a better position than the Celtics. #Celtics #BostonCeltics #Heat
