In the most recent five-game stretch, Winslow has 36 assists and only 5 turnovers.

Thursday's loss snapped Boston's four-game winning streak and marked the team's first loss in 2019, despite an attempted comeback in the third.

Wade scored eight of his 19 points in a third-quarter spurt that saved Miami from what was starting to look like a freefall, and the Heat went on to defeat the Celtics, 115-99, on Thursday night. Marcus Smart followed behind with 18 points and Jayson Tatum contributed 17 points as well.

Although he's scored just 17 and 12 points in the two games, both were blowouts in which Boston won by 20-plus points.

During a timeout in the game, a discussion about play on the court got heated between Marcus Morris and Jaylen Brown that went from talking shit to Morris somewhat squaring up and pushing Brown. He isn't the first player to request Wade's jersey this season, either. 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. The Celtics came into Thursday averaging 19.8 foul shots per game, third-fewest in the National Basketball Association this season.

"He [Wade] has a way of making us all look better", Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Miami led by as many as 26 shortly after halftime, then saw the Celtics peel off 16 unanswered points before Wade helped quickly restore order.

The Heat, who evened their record at 20-20, had six double-figure scorers, including Josh Richardson, who tallied 18. Derrick Jones Jr. scored 14, and Justise Winslow scored 13 points and added a career-high 11 assists for the Heat.
