Every team except one was in action on the night before American Thanksgiving. A couple of amazing shootout moves, a Rangers rout and some John Tavares magic were among the best things we saw from a stacked schedule of 15 games.

By the way, 36 days passed between Celtics losses. Any way you cut it, that's one impressive streak.

Brad Stevens was very quick to praise the Heat, adding that "it probably felt good" to them playing in American Airlines Arena tonight. He could tell Miami worked hard on screens in Monday's practice. Stevens added that Boston's 16-game win streak was a bit of a "mirage." He's been saying that there are all kinds of fixes his team can make, and tonight illustrated a few.

Justise Winslow, with Bam Adebayo ("he gives me confidence") told me on the floor after the game he and the Heat believe their win to snap the Celtics' winning streak will build their own teamwide confidence. He said the Heat came into this game knowing what was at stake, and what ending this streak would mean.
