Miami, Florida -- Jeff Green hits game winner against the Miami Heat, 111-110, Saturday night in Miami as the Celtics extend their winning streak to 3.
LeBron James himself bared that he considers the Boston Celtics as his closest rival and this game proves his claim. This rivalry brings out the best in both teams.
Take note, Boston is undergoing a rebuilding process after losing Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, but that didn't stop them from competing against the defending champs Miami Heat.
No excuses, no exception. The Celtics gutted it out just to get this big win to extend their winning streak to 3.
In a game that started with Miami being up by as much as 6 points, 31-25, at the end of the 1st quarter, Boston came back with a sense of urgency as they forced a seesaw battle en route to beating the Heat via Jeff Green's game winner with .6 of a second left in regulation.
Credit also the nice pass from Gerald Wallace. The diagonal pass was on point as the ball landed on the shooting pocket of Green in the far end corner of the court.
Jeff Green finished the game with 24 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists. LeBron on the other hand, led the Heat with 25 points, 10 assists, and 7 rebounds.
Look at the reaction of the Heat Bench after Jeff Green's game winner. Ray Allen can't believe what he saw. He scratched his head in disbelief.
