NBA Game Summary - Boston at Miami



(Saturday, November 9th)

Final Score: Boston 111, Miami 110

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Jeff Green made Dwyane Wade pay for a mistake that cost the Miami Heat a victory.

Wade had a chance to seal the outcome at the foul line and the Heat on top of the Celtics by two with 0.6 seconds remaining. After bricking the first attempt, Wade missed the rim entirely trying to intentionally miss the second.

The violation gave the ball back to Boston at midcourt, and Gerald Wallace sent a cross-court pass to Green in the right corner. Green got the shot off just in time and sank it with a hand in his face to stun the American Airlines Arena crowd and send Boston to a surprising 111-110 victory.

Green finished with 24 points, while Avery Bradley and Jordan Crawford chipped in 17 and 15 points, respectively, in Boston's third straight win following an 0-4 start to the season.

"This builds camaraderie," Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said. "It builds belief."

LeBron James scored 11 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter and added 10 assists and eight rebounds in the setback. Chris Bosh added 20 points and seven boards and Wade had an otherwise productive game with 18 points.

But Wade's night will be remembered for the missed free throws that cost the Heat a fourth straight win.

"It wasn't one of our better hours," Wade admitted.

With Miami on top, 108-106, in the closing seconds, Wade forced rookie Kelly Olynyk into an off-balance leaner that clanged off the backboard.

James seemingly sewed up the win with two free throws with 3.6 ticks to go, but a bucket from Wallace with one second left and a quick foul gave Boston one last chance it cashed in on.

There were 11 ties and 10 lead changes in a back-and-forth first half, with the last lead change coming just before the second-quarter buzzer as Crawford drained a deep 3-pointer to give the Celtics a slim 60-59 edge.

It was no more than a two-possession game the entire third quarter, and the Heat took an 82-80 lead into the fourth on Wade's late 19-footer.

Game Notes

Miami dropped its first game at home ... The Heat have scored 100-plus points in each of their seven games this season ... Miami lost despite shooting 58 percent from the floor ... Boston had 15 fastbreak points to Miami's five.
