Game 2: Postgame
Miami Heat 111, Boston Celtics 105.
Q. Rob, what did you see that broke down offensively in the fourth quarter?
ROBERT WILLIAMS: Just effort, playing the right way the whole game, honestly in my opinion. And trusting each other. We got to gain that trust and keep that trust throughout the whole game.
Q. Do you feel like that wavers?
ROBERT WILLIAMS: Yeah, I mean we lost, you know, so it's obviously something we need to get together, man. Time is running out. We ain't got time for these mess-ups, so...
Q. Rob, it seems mental with those guys. They feel like they can catch you. Jimmy feels like he can score every time down the floor. They just seem to have kind of a mental edge. How do you stop that and how do you try to get the mental edge back?
ROBERT WILLIAMS: You stop it. They feel like that mentally because they have been doing it, you know what I'm saying? Only way to stop it is to stop it.
Q. How do you stop it? The million-dollar question is how do you stop it?
ROBERT WILLIAMS: Play defense. Take the challenge. Everybody, the whole team. It's not a one-person thing. The whole team has to step up and take the challenge.
