Celtics-Heat Preview

MIAMI (AP) -- Paul Pierce is from Los Angeles, so he knows a thing or do about Hollywood.

And he knows he'll have to act better if the Boston Celtics are going to avoid getting into a quick two-game hole in their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Miami Heat.

A day after getting ejected from Boston's Game 1 loss, Pierce acknowledged that his actions were "selfish" and that he needed to do a better job keeping his composure. Nonetheless, he still believes that he was more victim than aggressor during the two plays in which he got technical fouls that sent him to the locker room with 7 minutes left in Miami's 99-90 win.

Game 2 is Tuesday, and Pierce isn't sure if the physicality both teams offered Sunday would carry over.

"This is not a movie or a script," Pierce said. "It's hard to really say what's going to happen game in, game out."

The Heat don't necessarily agree with that.

They think they know exactly what's coming on Tuesday -- a much better effort from the Celtics. Boston missed 20 of its first 26 shots in Game 1, never got Kevin Garnett rolling offensively and had Rajon Rondo limited by foul trouble. Even after all that misfortune, the Celtics had their chances to recover from what was once a 19-point hole in Game 1.

"We're physical teams, we're defensive-minded teams, play a similar style of basketball and it's the playoffs," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "That's all it is. We're not overblowing the physicality part of it. We're not trying to be somebody we're not. They're not trying to be anyone they're not. ... We know what our tenets are."

Pierce spoke to reporters Monday for the first time since the ejection. He was not available Sunday night, after he clashed with James Jones with 7:59 remaining following a hard foul, then exchanged words with Dwyane Wade 59 seconds later after the Heat guard ran into his screen. Double-technicals were called after both plays, and Pierce's ejection was automatic on the second.

"I thought I was fouled excessively on both plays," Pierce said.

So did Boston coach Doc Rivers, who is not wavering from the stance he offered in the minutes following Game 1, when he said the Heat were more "chippy" than "physical."

But on Monday, while not backing off that assertion, Rivers said the Celtics had bigger issues than whistles that didn't go their way.

"We didn't handle it very well," Rivers said. "Overall, I thought they hit first the entire game. I'm talking legally -- I'm talking their picks, their cuts, their actions. I just thought they played the game with a better force than we played the game, and that's something that shouldn't happen. Both teams should play with the same force."

What Wade and Jones did that hurt Boston most had nothing to do with the two plays that ended Pierce's night. They combined for 63 points on 19-for-28 shooting from the field and an 18-for-19 combined performance from the foul line. Those numbers made LeBron James' 22-point, six-rebound, five-assist statline seem quiet by comparison.

"I would approach this game just like I would approach this game whether I had 12 points (in Game 1) or 38," Wade said. "For me, every game is different with this team. Certain nights, my job is going to be different. They put a lot of attention toward LeBron so I got an opportunity to not have all eyes on me so I got into a rhythm. It might be different next game."

So might the lineups.

Rivers said Monday's practice might move Shaquille O'Neal closer to a return after missing nearly all of the last three months with leg problems. A decision on his Game 2 status likely won't be finalized until Tuesday morning's pregame shootaround. And Miami forward Udonis Haslem worked out again Monday, a day after he nearly made the active roster for the first time since rupturing a foot ligament on Nov. 20.

Both sides would see their depth bolstered if those big men returned, but the Celtics know an O'Neal comeback alone won't be enough of a change if they plan on returning to Boston with a 1-1 split in Miami.

"Miami has two of the best athletes in the game in LeBron James and Dwyane Wade," Celtics center Jermaine O'Neal said. "When they get into the open court, they tend to be very, very tough."

James knows a 1-0 lead against Boston is not enough. When he was with Cleveland a year ago, the Cavaliers had both 1-0 and 2-1 series leads over the Celtics in the East semis.

Undeterred, Boston won in six games -- a decision that still stings James.

"We're naturally confident," James said. "But you never get too high or too low in a playoff series. It's one game. Series is not won in one game."

That's not an excuse. This is the playoffs for Christ's sake. But enough of game 1, this is game 2 now, and I expect Rondo and KG to play way better than they did in Game 1. Also, a Pierce vs. Wade scoring duel would be some show.

Im not saying that its an excuse but sometimes too much time off makes player lose their timing. Look at the bulls. They had a lot of days off and look terrible in the 1st quarter and it took a while for them to actually get into the game.

With that said its gonna be a tough game tonight

Okay, I have to say, that's a pretty weak foul call when Boston had a lot of contact on the last possession with nothing called.

Of course you do...

The man swiped at his forearm then whacked him in the hip... That foul was clear as day.

There was no 'whack in the hip'. He got his hand on Wade's arm. I would be fine with that call if it's consistent, but with all the body contact on Boston's previous possession that was ignored, I don't like it.

I agree, it should've been 3 shots.

I saw the replay, there was no hip check. A hip check insinuates that KG intentionally pushed his hip out. Wade initiated any body contact because he burned KG. Again, I don't care if that's a foul, but if it is then the previous play has to be a foul. Consistency is key.

Again this game the Celt's can't buy a foul when they drive and draw contact, but the C's put a hand on a Heat player and it's free throws.

Heat fans have nothing to complain about with officiating, it's been clearly in your corner this series. And it's not the "Heat have slashers that force that" because that's not it.

Because he is attacking the basket and the C's defense is slow to react. I am sorry but he gets the ball in the post and then makes his move and there is no help defense from the weak side. When that happens it usually will result in the defender having to play more aggressive which will result in more fouls. Maybe you should question the defensive help on the weakside instead of the refs.

dude, did you not get the memo? Chicago fans aren't supposed to defend the Heat.
Bears fan doesn't equal Bulls fan.

Regardless, he claims foul numbers being even as the Refs not being bias. That's just dumb.

I understand the Heat have to amazing slashers...but that doesn't justify the lack of calls the Celtics are getting


CAN't WAIT till this series is back in Boston

So your refs can cheat. SMH. Double standards are nice. FT count by the way is currently 16-11 Miami. Not very big differential considering the amount of driving and no-calls that have happened so far.
