Jason Jackson says Heat-Celtics series closer than experts seem to realize
Jackson said that some of the analysis is too kneejerk for the series. You have “text message tough guys” ripping the Heat, and TV experts reacting too strongly to each contest. No one has perspective. Jackson noted how close the series is and it’s more about a bounce here and a bounce there.
“Neither team has put together a full good game,” Jackson said.
But Jackson did want to make suer Boston go its due. “Give Boston credit,” Jackson said. “When they’ve had an opportunity to make plays, they’ve made them.”
Jackson also opined on the future of the Heat. He said in the offseason, if they lose, they’re going to have a long conversation about how these parts fit together and who should coach the team.
Jackson doesn’t think Erik Spoelstra will be fired if the Heat lose to the Celtics. And he thinks they keep the Big Three together because Chris Bosh was hurt and they don’t know really what they can do. He does think that they’ll change the pieces around the stars.
