  • Here's what happened in the Celtics' 115-99 loss to the Heat

San Antonio had 27 assists in their win against Boston, DeMar DeRozan lead them with ten, but the Celtics actually had 30 that night.

The Celtics saw their four-game winning streak come to an end Thursday night in Miami with a 115-99 loss to the Heat.

Miami Heat forward James Johnson, top, goes to the basket against Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving (11) during the first half of an NBA basketball game, Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, in Miami. Miami took the lead in the second quarter and did not let go.

Kyrie Irving led all scorers with 22 on 10-for-19 shooting for the Celtics, who scored a season-high 135 points one night earlier in a win over in but were held under 100 for only the fourth time all season, the first since November 17. Marcus Smart put up 18 points.

There's been numerous lineup changes, a heated exchange between Marcus Morris and Jaylen Brown and team meetings.


Dwyane Wade knew the Boston Celtics would make a run. What made it ever funnier was the fact that the Heat wouldn't be playing the Celtics for another six weeks.

So he stopped them at the brink of collapse.

Minus a bona fide superstar, the Heat are getting consistent performances from a cast of hardworking youngsters and crafty veterans like Wade, who has been demoted to bench duty in his final National Basketball Association season. He's averaging 26.3 FanDuel points through 35 games this season.

"We're not happy about where we are right now", coach Erik Spoelstra said. Miami pulled ahead 61-43 before halftime. Derrick Jones Jr. was all over the court, connecting on threes, finishing plays inside, getting rebounds, and making insane steals while putting in 14 points.
