Original title:Tatum:To return home with a sense of urgency from a 2-3 deficit, you must win G6
On May 26th, Beijing time, in the fifth game of the Eastern Conference finals held at the home of the Heat today, the Heat lost 80-93 to the Celtics and fell behind 2-3 in the series.
Tatum injured his shoulder again in the game, but he insisted on finishing the game and dominated the second half of the game, scoring 22 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists. Tatum said after the game:”My shoulder bothered me a bit, but my trainer gave me treatment and we found a way to solve it. Obviously, both teams are playing very hard and everyone is competing.”
The Celtics were still behind in the first half. Talking about the reasons for reversing the situation in the second half, Tatum said: “We had too many mistakes in the first half, and everyone didn’t like the way we played. We talked about this game. How important is it, we saw a 55 to 50 chance, so we played hard and decided to fix the mistakes we made.”
“We need to come back home with a 2-3 mentality and play with that urgency, like Game 6 is a game that has to be won. The Heat are a great team, they have great coach, and won’t give up. We can’t relax, because it’s possible. Obviously, we were like this in the last round of the series,” Tatum said.
The Celtics won the Tianwangshan victory on the road, and they are about to return to the home to usher in G6, with the hope of advancing to the finals at home. Talking about the key to winning G6, Tatum said: “Don’t believe those people on TV who say that we have the championship, because there is still a long way to go.”
