ray-allenOct 27, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The star studded Miami heat side was cut to size by the Boston Celtics in the first game of the season. In spite of LeBron James scoring the game-high 31 points, the rest of attack by the Miami side was held up tightly by the non porous Boston Celtic defense. Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics explained to the media how his side managed to hold back some of the biggest names in the NBA at the TD Garden.

Ray Allen said that they formed a great ’swarm’ and felt that everyone was in position in the side. He also added that all the players in the Boston Celtic’s defense knew almost all the strategies that the Miami Heat could have used and felt that Rajon Rando left no gap for the star studded Miami Heat attack. Dwayne Wade who played his first game for the Miami Heat, looked completely out of sorts in the match and struggled to shoot against the impenetrable defense. Apart from LeBron James, the rest of the Miami Heat side looked like they were having a bad shooting day and the Boston Celtics on the other hand continued to maintain the lead through the quarters.

Ray Allen said that they tried to stop LeBron James as much as they could and also felt that he was satisfied with the defense overall. He also said that there was one spot from which he felt that his side allowed some 3s and wanted to improve it. The Boston Celtics will face the LeBron James less Cleveland Cavaliers side on Wednesday and the fans will hope that they maintain the ’swarm’ that fended off the Miami Heat attack.
