Celtics' Morris appears to shove teammate Brown

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

Boston's five-game streak of tallying 30 assists or more ended in this loss.

After two frustrating losses in the last three weeks in which they blew big leads against contending teams, the Miami Heat finally broke the trend with Thursday's victory against the Boston Celtics.

His plans are quite simple: "Don't let it go".

The up-and-down game seemed to take a toll on two Celtics players, as Marcus Morris and Jaylen Brown were seen arguing in front of the team's bench at one point during a stoppage in play.

Irving had 12 points, but there were three other Celtics who scored over 20, and four, including Kyrie who had more than 10.

At this point, Wade's opponents are putting in requests for his game-worn jersey, and interestingly enough, it's gotten to the point to where he's had to make some tough decisions as to who to do the exchange with.

The Celtics lost to the Heat 115-99.

So he stopped them at the brink of collapse.

Nikola Jokic had 18 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists for his 21st career triple-double to help the Denver Nuggets extend their home winning streak to 11 by cruising past the Los Angeles Clippers 121-100.

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.

"I've been on this train with him for a long time, " Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said, per NBA.com.

Josh Richardson followed close behind Wade contributing 18 points.

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