I don’t care about the duel with Adebayo. I care about the Celtics

“Celtics” started the “play-off” first round series against “Heat” with a convincing victory – 114:94 (26:21, 34:24, 31:14, 23:35).

Porzingis scored 18 points in this match, making four of eight long-range shots, while his counterpart Adebayo scored 24 points.

Jimmy Butler can’t help the Heat because of an injury, so Adebayo needs to take on the leadership role even more.

At the press conference, Porzingis was asked if he takes the duel against Adebayo personally?

“No, this is business,” replied Porzingis with a smile. “Of course, we want to stop him as much as possible,” added the Latvian basketball player.

Porzingis noted that the “Celtics” are well aware that the “Heat” will play through Adebayo in almost every attack.

“He’s going to be involved in every situation. I don’t care about him. I care about our team and what we’re trying to achieve. This is not my one-on-one with Bem. This is the Celtics versus the Heat that’s what we’re going to focus on,” said Porzingis.

The second game of the series will take place on April 24 in Boston, on April 27 and 29 the matches will take place in Miami.

If the series needs more than four games, they will take place on May 1 in Boston, May 3 in Miami and May 5 at the Celtics.

Last year, in the “play-off” tournament, “Celtics” came back from 0-3, but in the end they lost 3-4 to the “Heat” team, which reached the NBA finals, where the Miami team had to admit the superiority of the Denver “Nuggets”.
