Jaylen Brown & Marcus Morris Get Into Altercation During Game; Morris Shoves Brown

13 January 2019

After two frustrating losses in the last three weeks in which they blew big leads against contending teams, the Miami Heat finally broke the trend with Thursday's victory against the Boston Celtics.

Dwyane Wade knew the Boston Celtics would make a run.

"I've been on this train with him for a long time", Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

Playing professional sports can get quite heated at times, especially when the game is not going your way, but your team has the talent and isn't producing.

Derrick Jones Jr. scored 14 points, and Justise Winslow finished with 13 points and a career-best 11 assists for the Heat.

Despite the 22 points for Irving, he had a very cold shooting night in the second half of the game.

Midway through the first quarter, Johnson used a screen from Heat center Hassan Whiteside and split between Celtics defenders Al Horford and Marcus Smart.

Boston scored the next 16 points, with Tatum getting six of them and the Celtics were right back in the game.

The Green trailed by as much as 26 points in the third quarter, but pulled within eight points late in the quarter before the Heat pulled away in the fourth. "I got a couple of shots to fall".

Boston will continue their road trip on Saturday night in Orlando, followed by a matchup against the Nets in Brooklyn on Monday night. Brown was benched the rest of the half and did not re-enter until just before the end of the third quarter.

But the Celtics bench was thoroughly out-played.
