Heat snap Celtics' win streak (1:35)

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

It's still very early (second quarter just started), but the Celtics so far have looked out of sync. They've bobbled a few passes, one of which led to an awkwardly missed Marcus Smart shot. They've mishandled a rebound. A mixup between Daniel Theis and Marcus Morris on a ball it originally looked like Theis would shoot led to a turnover and subsequent Heat 3. Before the game, Brad Stevens praised Miami's physicality, saying it could be a concern.

For 16 games the "streak" has been on for the Celtics. As they try to extend their winning streak to 17 games in Miami, the Heat want their fans to be on.

Breaking down NBA moves and injuries, including White's foot

Okaro White fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot during practice last week, and after surgery he's likely out at least the next couple of months. Do the Heat have enough depth to get by?

Heat big man Hassan Whiteside scored 22 points and grabbed 16 boards in a victory over the Wizards on Friday. It was the 29th game in his career with at least 20 points and 15 rebounds, all coming with Miami.
