Wade in Disbelief Over Home Loss
It was 94-90 Boston when the buzzer sounded on Game 5 on Tuesday night, the Celtics taking a 3-2 series lead back to Boston — one win away from their third trip to the NBA Finals in five years. One win away from decimating the team that set out to do that very thing to them.
“Desperation,” is what (Dwyane) Wade called it in the home locker room. ” … I never thought we’d be in this situation.”
They are, because the Celtics — with more championship instincts and will than the Heat have been able to muster in this two-year experiment with their own Big Three — put them there.
