BOSTON — LeBron James made the go-ahead jumper with 10.5 seconds left to lead Miami to its 23rd consecutive victory, 105-103 over the Boston Celtics on Monday night.

It’s the second-longest winning streak in NBA history, surpassing the 22 straight that Houston won in 2007-08 and trailing only the 33 in a row won by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.

James scored 37 with 12 assists as the Heat won in Boston in the regular season for the first time in 11 tries despite a career-high 43 points from Jeff Green. The Celtics were without Kevin Garnett, who has the flu and a left thigh strain.

    Galing mo James Lebron…hindi tulad ni James Yap na gusto pa rin daw mag shoot muna bago mag dribble kay Titay. Na miss niya ang galing ni Titay sa kama will all her experiences sa mga lalaki niya sa buhay. James Yap is one dimensional shooter in sex, three point shoot agad then dribble, short lang ang play kaya di type ni Titay.
