LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Jae Crowder will tell anybody who asks that the Miami Heat are extremely well-prepared for whatever comes their way in the Eastern Conference finals.
He can say the same about the Boston Celtics, too.
Crowder and fellow Heat teammate Kelly Olynyk are both in the East title series for the second time. Their first time was in 2017 - when they were Boston teammates under coach Brad Stevens. And it isn't hard for Crowder to see the similarities between Stevens and Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.
