Speaking to the press on Friday night, he reminded everyone that the series is the first to four.
He admitted that the Celtics let their fanbase down but that his team needed to shake it off and dig deep to ensure victory in the days ahead.

That will be tough to do against this Heat team, who are incredibly competitive at home.
The entire team is going to have to come together and play their hearts out if they wish to keep their hopes of the Finals alive.
On Friday night, Brown wasn t as helpful as he can be.
He scored 16 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists.
Even though they are sub-par, those numbers made him the second-best player on his team for Game 2, behind Jayson Tatum and his 34 points, 13 rebounds, and 8 assists.
Weeks ago, many agreed that the Celtics had a very good chance of making the Finals.
Now they are fighting to keep their season alive.
Brown and the rest of the team have had a tough few games.
But things might get a lot tougher in Miami.
