Heat torch Celtics with 23 3-pointers to even series in Game 2



BOSTON -- The day before his shorthanded Miami Heat sought to even the score with the heavily favored Celtics, head coach Erik Spoelstra made an interesting comment about his team's identity.

After being deluged by Boston's 3-point shooting in Game 1 of the first-round series, Spoelstra said his team needed to do a better job of letting it fly in order to keep pace.

"I understand the math of it," Spoelstra said, before adding, "We're not going to shoot 50 of them. That's not realistic."

Maybe 50 wasn't quite realistic.
