2012 Eastern Conference Finals: Miami Heat Reaction To Game 3 Loss

With two quarters of lulls and 10 missed free throws in their Game 3 loss to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Miami Heat didn't appear to put forward their best effort in a game that could've put the defending conference champions up 3-0 in the series.

Still, the Heat isn't panicking just yet. After all, they did put together a comeback that had fans at the edge of their seats in the fourth quarter, though it wasn't enough to erase what the Celtics had done up to that point.

After the game, Dwayne Wade gave credit to the unlikely heroic performances of Marquis Daniels and Keyon Dooling, who both came off the Boston bench to provide quality minutes on both sides of the floor against Miami.

Watch Wade and LeBron James in the post-game press conference right here.
