FINAL SCORE: Celtics 107, Heat 99

IN BRIEF After jumping out to a 22-point lead in the second half, the Celtics let the Heat cut the deficit all the way down to five before Kyrie Irving took over down the stretch (sensing a pattern here?). In the process, Irving set a new career-high for steals in a game (8), as he led all scorers with 26 points and added 10 assists.
