Thursday's National Basketball Association roundup: Heat shooting sinks Celtics

Thursday's National Basketball Association roundup: Heat shooting sinks Celtics

Derrick Jones Jr. scored 14 points, and Justise Winslow finished with 13 points and a career-best 11 assists for the Heat.

Tyler Johnson got a pair of 3s to fall in a 67-second span early in the fourth, and just like that Miami was back up 95-76.

"We are starting to figure out how to win against good teams on our home floor", Wade said.

Irving dropped 17 points with two assists and two rebounds in the first half.

As seen in the video footage embedded below, the two exchanged words near the bench before Morris shoved Brown and Marcus Smart had to step in.

Winslow scored 36.9 FanDuel points in the win.

Despite some early struggles, the Celtics are still the fifth seed in the East, and 4.5 games out of first at 25-15.

Dwyane Wade is a popular figure among his National Basketball Association peers, and as the three-time champion and future first ballot Hall of Famer wraps up his career, he's been popularizing an old sports tradition. The Celts visit Orlando on Saturday. Boston blew out the Pacers 135-108, and after the game, head coach Brad Stevens attributed the team's play as of late to the last game they lost.

Boston, playing on consecutive nights and on the road as opposed to the more-rested Heat, didn't show much energy after the first quarter. Jones made a 40-footer to end the first half, and had a 60-footer to end the third quarter hit the rim and bounce off.

The Boston Celtics have dealt with a few ups and downs through the start of the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season. The Celtics played every other National Basketball Association team at least once in 2018; the Heat played every team besides Boston and Golden State, who they last faced on December 3, 2017 and won't see for the first time this year until February 10 in Oakland.
