Above you see some highlights of the post-game press conferences in Miami after Boston came in and stole Game 5, taking a 3-2 series lead (with the chance to close it out at home Thursday).
Erik Spoelstra used a lot of vague coach speak and sounded more like a motivational speaker than a anything else. Chris Bosh got more time at the podium than he did on the court — Spoeltra needs more Bosh in Game 6, not less.
Rivers and Rondo talked about what we all saw — the focus on the team, about them grinding out and staying in it when the Heat were hot, giving themselves a chance. They dealt with adversity, Miami wilted when faced with it.
