Joel Embiid slaps Heat with harsh Boston reality

After watching the Boston Celtics dismantle the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid is convinced the South Beach franchise is no match for Beantown’s team.

The Heat may be the best team in the East during the regular season, but the Celtics have shown in the playoffs that they are a strong roster with players who can contribute in different areas of the game. Game 5 is proof of that, with Boston leading by as much as 23 points before settling for a 93-80 win.

All of the Celtics players who saw minutes in the competition played their part. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown led goals, Al Horford and Robert Williams built defense, while Marcus Smart, Derrick White and Grant Williams did whatever was asked of them to meet Boston’s other needs. In contrast, the Heat got poor performance from their starters and fought offensively for most of the night.

With that, Embiid was brutally honest with his assessment of the series, highlighting that the Celtics have too many guns for the Heat to handle.

Now Joel Embiid isn’t saying the heat doesn’t stand a chance. You’ve already won two games, and it’s not just luck. However, it’s pretty clear that the depth of the Celtics is now showing and giving them a huge advantage.

The Celtics have an opportunity to end the series at home in Game 6 and for the Heat to stop them they must first find a way to stop their guns.
