Brown and Hayward start it, Williams and Smart finish it: 10 Takeaways from Celtics/Heat

1. The Celtics are starting to pile up a handful of candidates for “win of the year” to this point in the season. The comeback against the Bucks and blowout over the Lakers were leading candidates, but this game should be way up there. Miami was 21-2 at home prior to this game. Boston was without key rotation contributors Jayson Tatum and Enes Kanter, and had the depth further sapped with Javonte Green out. It got a little bumpy when Miami broke out the zone defense in the second quarter, but by the break, and throughout the second half, Boston was in control.
