BOSTON -- They’ve won close games. They’ve won in blowout fashion. And on Monday night, against their arch-rival, the Miami Heat overcame a career night from Jeff Green to win their 23rd straight game. Five years to the day after the Boston Celtics ended the Houston Rockets’ 22-game winning streak, they came up just short against the Heat, falling 105-103 at home. 24 hours after St. Patrick’s Day, Boston was still all about green on the night. Jeff Green that is. No player scored more against Miami in a single game this season than Green did tonight, who poured in 43 points; the most any Celtic has scored this season. It was a sensational performance from Boston’s X-factor and most versatile offensive player. And yet it wasn’t enough. After all, the Heat have LeBron James. The best player on the planet, who’s in the midst of playing the best basketball of his career. In the same building James showed the world he was ready to win his first NBA Championship -- Game 6 in the Eastern C...

LeBron James gets technical foul for taunting Jason Terry after posterizing him (Video)

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James threw down a slam dunk all over Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry during the second quarter of Monday night's game at the TD Garden. Terry was knocked to the floor as he tried to play defense on the play, but to no avail. Afterwards, LeBron stood over Terry and gave him a nasty glare, prompting the referee to assess him with a technical foul...

Green, Celtics Close To Ending The Heat’s Streak, But No Cigar

Heat 105, Celtics 103 Do moral victories exist in the minds of NBA players? Do they consider the difficult circumstances, appreciate their team’s effort, and accept the fact that, although they lost, they played really well? The short answer is probably not. Yet when the Celtics (36-30) gave the Heat, a team that has seemed untouchable throughout their 23-game winning streak, everything...

Heat escape Boston with a 105-103 win; streak hits 23 despite career game from Jeff Green

Ugh. The Celtics, without Kevin Garnett (and Rondo, and Sullinger, and Barbosa..) had the Heat right where they wanted them. They were up 17 in the first half, and 13 with 8:27 to go in the 4th. But they couldn't close the door. Lebron James was too good, scoring 37 points to go with 12 assists and 7 boards for Miami. The Celtics were led by Jeff Green's career high 43 points...

2003-04 Cavaliers look back at rise of LeBron

His teammates called him "Elvis" because of his fame. They laughed when he donned a wig and sunglasses so he could walk around a mall without being noticed. Yes, LeBron James was big news when he joined the Cleveland Cavaliers 10 years ago, But could anybody have envisioned back then the prodigy from Akron, Ohio, would end up being this legendary of a player? As a skinny...

Heat-Cavaliers Preview

LeBron James and the Miami Heat are about to play another game in Cleveland. Yawn. That's what a 23-game winning streak will do for a team. It mutes even the LeBron-Goes-Home-Again hype. Someday the Heat will lose another basketball game. Maybe even Wednesday night, when the reigning NBA champions drop by James' old neighborhood to take on James' old team, which happens...

LeBron James Brandon Knight’ed Jason Terry

LeBron James absolutely crushed a dunk over Jason Terry during the first half of the Celtics and Heat match-up on Monday night.  The poster came only a week after Brandon Knight was dunked on in the same fashion by DeAndre Jordan.  LeBron was also receiving an alley-oop during his massacre of a defender.   Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Live Game Updates - Celtics @ Hornets

9:35: The Celtics continued their aggressive play in tonight's first quarter. It could've been better, but I'll still take their current 31-22 lead. Jeff Green is playing well again tonight, leading the C's with 11 points. Pierce has also chipped in 6. Keep watching, this should be a good one.

LeBron James Destroys Jason Terry

LeBron James destroys Jason Terry with a fast break alley-oop jam midway through the second quarter on Monday night. Terry lost the ball before crossing half court and attempted to contest an airborne James from punching home the alley-oop but instead went flying himself and got a post-dunk stare down.

LeBron James Gives Jason Terry the Brandon Knight Treatment

I've been looking for it, but I haven't seen it yet. Brandon Knight has to tweet something in regards to the dunk that LeBron James threw down on Jason Terry Monday night. It doesn't have to be much. Something simple like "I guess everyone is going to quit making fun of me now #jasonterry" or some derivation of that would work. The taunting was...

Fans, media remain fascinated with big dunks over small guys

By most accounts, LeBron James is 6-8, 270 lbs. Jason Terry is a modest 6-2, 180 lbs. I would expect James to dunk over Terry 100 out of 100 times. So… why the hell is the NBA blogosphere still buzzing about James’ dunk from last night? I thought we saw the end of this silliness when Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski lauded Brandon Knight for challenging this DeAndre Jordan highlight...

Miami Heat Overcome 27-Point Deficit to Win No. 24

It would have been poetic if the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers had been able to beat LeBron James and the Heat in Cleveland to stop Miami's winning streak at 23--would have been. At one time down by 27 points, the Heat overcame their largest deficit of the season to go on to win 98-95. For a time it looked like they were going to be able to do just that after a 23-3 run...

Why the Celtics Can Beat the Heat

If I were to ask you at the beginning of the year, if the Celtics could beat the Heat without Rajon Rondo or Kevin Garnett, I am certain that most of you would say no. These are two fundamental players that drive this team and without them, it would be difficult to beat the best of the best. Yet, this past Monday, the Celtics came three points away of ending the Miami Heat’s historical...

Miami Heat Still Streaking; Win Nail Biter Over Boston

It was a lot closer than the Miami Heat would have liked it to be, but in the end the result was exactly what they wanted--a 105-103 win over the Boston Celtics to extend their winning streak to a record 23 in a row! History was not in favor of the Miami Heat as they tried to go for their 23rd consecutive win Monday night against the Boston Celtics. It had been sometime since...
