Boston Celtics fans were quite proud of their team last week.
The Celtics turned the tables and shifted the narrative around by showing a lot of fight to get back in the Eastern Conference Finals after going down 3-0, and most people expected them to be aggressive and dominate in Game 7 in front of their fans.
Instead, the Miami Heat hit the ground running and were on top of them for most of the game, blowing them out in the second half en route to a 19-point road win.

That’s why former Celtics player Eddie House believes the players should feel like they failed, as it’s one thing to go out fighting, and another entirely different thing is to go out the way they did.
House believes the players let their teammates, families, coaches, fans, and even the TV crew down for not even putting up a fight in an elimination game, and understands why the fans booed them in the fourth quarter.
Celtics fans are passionate and ruthless and won’t tolerate any less than greatness from their players when they’re at the TD Garden.
No one can judge a team for losing, and the Celtics sure proved that they had some courage left in them by putting up such an impressive fight to even put themselves in this position.
But they pretty much tapped out in the second half of the game, and neither of their best players were able to lead by example and take over, which is why the fans were so disheartened and angry after the game.NEXT: Analyst Says 'Karma Got The Celtics' After Game 7 Loss
