Here's what happened in the Celtics' 115-99 loss to the Heat

They've also had a much-needed eight-game winning streak after a 10-10 start to the season.

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.

Miami Heat forward James Johnson, top, goes to the basket against Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving (11) during the first half of an NBA basketball game, Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, in Miami.

His plans are quite simple: "Don't let it go".

The Boston Celtics have hit the midway point of the season and are now 25-16, good for fifth in the Eastern Conference.

Josh Richardson tallied 18 points and Derrick Jones scored 14 for the Heat, who ended a two-game skid and improved to 20-20 on the season. Jayson Tatum and Marcus Morris each added 17. It was an opportunity for Rozier to swap jerseys with his childhood idol, Dwyane Wade, who has announced this year will be his last before retirement. Miami, however, continued to knock down three-pointers - as they shot 46.2 percent from the perimeter - and the end result was a 115-99 win.

Celtics: Boston had its fourth-lowest-scoring first half of the season (43), its worst since scoring 37 in the first half at Portland on November 11.

Miami led by as many as 26 points just after the half before Boston closed the gap, scoring 16 unanswered points.

Brown is averaging 12.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists while serving in a bench role. Miami pulled ahead 61-43 before halftime.

"We're not happy about where we are right now", coach Erik Spoelstra said.
