The Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat and Kevin Garnett answered questions at a postgame news conference. When asked about the Heat, KG offered polite praise of the team. Then, Paul Pierce stepped in.
"Man, I am going to tell you the truth. They got D-Leaguers out there, so I think we just handled our business. We're supposed to do that. We knew this was a game we were supposed to win, and we just focused from the jump and went out and did it."
In short, he is telling the truth. Currently, the Heat have nine healthy players on their roster. Six have D-League experience.
- Earl Barron
- Stephane Lasme
- Kasib Powell
- Blake Ahearn
- Alexander Johnson
- Joel Anthony
"Oh, did we?" said Ron Rothstein, the Miami assistant who ran the bench while head coach Pat Riley missed his fourth game to resume his college scouting tour. "How about that?"
Pierce is right. The Heat are a bunch of D-Leaguers, but at least the team could care.
