Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics: Game 3 preview sound


The Miami Heat got back to work on Thursday, arriving at the AAA at 10am to start preparing both on the court and in the video room for Saturday's Game 3 against the Boston Celtics.  Speaking with the players following their on court workout, the feeling was that they are taking a very business like approach to the next couple of games on the road. 

The Heat players know as well as anyone that when they are playing on top of their game it's going to be very difficult for any team in the NBA to beat them.  Erik Spoelstra does a good job reminding his players of how hard they have to work in order to be playing at their best, but its something they have proven to be able to do regardless of who they are playing or what venue they are playing at.
