Kid yells "good job, good effort" to Heat players after Game 5 loss

At least there's one true fan in Miami

6/5/12 in NBA   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

June 5, 2012; Miami, FL, USA; Miami Heat small forward LeBron James (6) during the second half in game five of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics of the 2012 NBA playoffs at American Airlines Arena. Boston won 94-90. Mandatory Credit: Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIREAs a Celtics fan, I very much enjoyed the Celtics' 94-90 Game 5 win over the Heat in Miami.

Paul Pierce hit a monster 3-pointer in the waning seconds, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett hit some key free throws, and the Celtics will come back to Boston with a 3-2 lead in the series despite losing the first 2 games.

One of the best parts of the evening, however, was right after the game, when one young Heat fan had some encouraging words for the dejected Heat players as they went back to the locker room.

Check out the video, courtesy of @Jose3030:




The series shifts back to Boston, where the Celtics won both games earlier in the series. In franchise history, the Celtics are 36-2 when they have a 3-2 series lead.

The Heat need to win in Boston and then again in Miami if they want to make it to the finals and win one of the 8+ championships they were promised by LeBron during their introductory celebration.

We'll see if he can provide another "good effort" and get it done.
