The Celtics improved to 3-0 against the Heat this season with a win in Boston on Sunday afternoon.
Afterward, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade both admitted that the Celtics are standing in their way of an NBA title.
"I have the same feeling right now as I had when I was in my third and fourth year and we played Detroit," James said. "Regular season and playoffs, we just couldn't get over the hump."
Said Wade: "Everyone has been through it. M.J. went through it with the Pistons back in the day. ... This is classic, typical bigger brothers."
