The Boston Celtics needed to take the Eastern Conference Finals one game at a time.
You cannot win more than one game in just one night, and even though it might sound cliche, they just needed to focus on getting the job done instead of thinking of the remainder of the series.
They warned the Miami Heat not to let them get one win; they’ve now won two games in a row.
“They let us get 2. Don't let us get another one.”

That’s why Celtics star Jaylen Brown warned the Heat not to let them extend their season any further, and he’s right on point.
Miami had all the momentum going in their favor in the first three games, even running the Celtics off the court in Game 3.
But now all the energy has shifted.
The Celtics look confident in their ability to overcome this deficit, and all the pressure is now on the underdogs.
Boston has more than enough talent in their ranks to make history and become the first team to come back from a 0-3 series deficit in the NBA playoffs.
Erik Spoelstra needs to work overtime to try and figure out how to close them out, as another loss would put them in a tough spot.
You don’t want to lose three in a row and then play Game 7 at the TD Garden of all places, let alone against a team featuring two All-NBA-caliber players in Brown and Jayson Tatum.
The ball’s in their court now, and it’ll be interesting to see how they respond to this challenge.NEXT: Former NBA Player Has Advice For Jayson Tatum
