MIAMI – The Celtics saw their four-game winning streak come to an end Thursday night in Miami with a 115-99 loss to the Heat.
The Green trailed by as much as 26 points in the third quarter, but pulled within eight points late in the quarter before the Heat pulled away in the fourth.
Kyrie Irving had 22 points for Boston. Marcus Smart put up 18 points. Jayson Tatum and Marcus Morris each added 17.
But the Celtics bench was thoroughly out-played. No Boston bench player reached double digits, while the Heat saw their bench go off for 60 points, including 19 from Dwyane Wade.
The Celtics visit the Orlando Magic on Saturday.
