Celtics jump in standings with 112-93 win over the Heat

The Boston Celtics had a date with the Eastern Conference's two seed - the Miami Heat. Miami, playing in a second night of a back-to-back on the road, were underdogs coming into the contest, and the Celtics showed them exactly why that was the case. It took a quarter and a half (as always) but the Celts finally took off and didn't look back, surpassing the Heat in both the game and in the standings after a 113-92 victory.

The Boston backcourt was phenomenal all night, as Kemba Walker (28pts, 7ast) and Jaylen Brown (31pts) carried the bulk of the scoring for the green team.
