After some time, Kemba Walker calm down the things and said “It was nothing,” Walker said. “It was nothing. I’m not speaking about it.”

“We’re frustrated,” Tatum said. “That’s team sports. We’re not supposed to be happy we’re down 0-2. It was nothing ordinary. Just talking about the game. It’s cool, going to get ready for the next one.”

“What happens in the locker going to stay in the locker room,” Tatum later added. “We’re not supposed to come out here and talk about what we talked about as a team after a win or a loss. That’s why we go in the locker room and talk to each other, whether we win or lose. That’s that.”
“Guys were emotional after a hard game, a hard loss,” Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said.
The Celtics had 5 made shots and 5 turnovers on 25 plays against the Heat's zone defense in the 2nd half.
