• Celtics say intensity must rise vs. Heat in Game 2


    MIAMI (AP) - The Boston Celtics started their video session Tuesday by watching all 19 layups and dunks the Miami Heat made in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

    It was not a feel-good moment for the Celtics. These days, those are few and far between.

    Ray Allen is hurting, the Celtics sputtered in the opener against Miami and if that wasn't enough, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are rolling along for the Heat, who will try to take a 2-0 series lead on their home floor Wednesday night.

    James and Wade combined for 54 points in Miami's 93-79 win in Game 1. Outside of Kevin Garnett, Boston's top players all struggled offensively, but it was the defense that really raised the Celtics' ire.
