BOSTON -- Mickael Pietrus smiled his entire postgame interview, maintaining an optimistic outlook following the Boston Celtics Game 6 loss to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Confernece Finals.
As he discussed the upcoming Game 7 in Miami, he talked about staying positive, keeping their heads up, and playing with energy.
Good things happen when you stay positive, he said after the Heats 98-79 win. Saturday is going to be a great day for us.
Pietrus doesnt want to consider the alternative. When he joined the Celtics this season, he made no secret of the fact that he wanted to win a championship. Over the past months, he has emphasized sacrificing himself for the team and buying in to one another.
Winning is the only option he is thinking about.
Its Game 7, he said. Its win or go home. Im not interested in going fishing. Im not a big fishing guy. Im more of an OKC guy.
The Oklahoma City Thunder await the winner of the Celtics-Heat battle in the NBA Finals.
