The Celtics have been the first team to take a 3-2 lead over Miami in this series, and there is still one game left. The question now becomes whether or not LeBron James will be able to give his squad enough help against Boston’s gritty defense.

The “celtics head coach” is a blog post from the celtics head coach Ime Udoka that details what the deciding factor will be in Game 7 against the Heat.

In each of the Eastern Conference Finals’ previous two games, the Boston Celtics have struggled to get out of the gate. In Game 6, a sloppy start robbed them the opportunity to finish the series on their own floor, and a similarly sloppy start in Game 7 might spell the end of their season.

Head coach Ime Udoka made it plain ahead of the series finale that going out to an early lead rather than playing catch-up would be the key to win.

Ime Udoka and the Celtics are not worried about their Game 6 defeat.

In Game 6, the Celtics had a great chance to beat the Heat in front of their home fans, but Miami came out on top and never looked back. The Heat led by ten points only a few minutes into the game and by seven points at the half.

Boston was forced to play catch-up throughout the whole game, which ultimately cost them the game. Now that the series has returned to Miami for a winner-take-all Game 7, Udoka is looking forward to another road victory.

“For us, it’s not just about the series. According to ESPN, Udoka told reporters Saturday morning, “It’s been all season.” “It hasn’t been easy even in these playoffs… Much of it is attributable to our actions, and we can certainly improve.

“But it’s a new chance for us.” You placed yourself in this situation by getting ahead 3-2 and having to win two games. So, as much as you’d want to end it on your home court, we’ve gone up and down this series, and it’s where it is right now because of that.”

In Game 7, Udoka wants his Celtics to get off to a good start.

Teams can’t afford to fall behind early in low-scoring, high-pressure postseason games. The Celtics have done that in each of the last two games against Miami, and Udoka believes that has to change in Game 7.

“A lot of it has to do with our slow starts and trying to make up the whole game,” Udoka said. “We recognized Miami’s circumstances last night and didn’t play our best basketball defensively or offensively in the first quarter.” The majority of the game was spent behind the eight ball. Despite the fact that we took the lead late or tied it many times, it always seemed like we were fighting an uphill struggle and shooting ourselves in the foot.

“We’d want to get off to a stronger start, put some pressure on the opponent when they’re in that scenario, like we did in Game 7 versus Milwaukee.” That’s how we’re approaching it. We obviously want to get off to a better start in [Miami]. We’re confident in our ability to win down there, but we need to get out to a better start, make easy baskets, and not give them life early in the game.”

With their season on the line, expect the Celtics to play with even more ferocity on Sunday night.
