Miami
Boston

[BOSTON] — The Boston Celtics played host to the Miami Heat last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 112 to 108 C's victory. The win bumps Boston's record up to 48-26 on the season, while the loss drags Miami's down to 35-38. Though a win's a win and Celtics fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was Hassan Whiteside leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 19 points, 15 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 blocks and 1 steals in 30 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Unfortunately for Whiteside, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Celtics. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Miami back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Celtics in the victory was Al Horford and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Whiteside, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Horford posted 7 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists in the win.

Boston's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Heat, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the C's will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling C's will be a date with the Milwaukee Bucks while the visiting Heat will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Detroit Pistons.
