Box Score


Another road meltdown: The Celtics have righted the ship on the homefront (six straight wins at TD Garden) but they found themselves sliding back into some ugly habits on the second half of a tough back-to-back on Thursday night, as an ugly second quarter (33-19 Heat advantage) paved the way to a blowout win for Miami. Seven different Heat players scored in double figures but no one made a bigger impact in the second half than Dwyane Wade (team-high 19 points off the bench) who hit several crucial jumpers in the fourth quarter to help put Boston away. Kyrie Irving scored a game-high 22 points for the visitors who shot an ugly 40 percent from the field on an ugly night for the offense outside of the first six minutes of the game (6-of-7 shooting). The C’s had their four-game winning streak snapped and dropped to 2-5 on the year in the second half of back-to-back games.
