Celtics Vs. Heat, Halftime Score: Boston Down 34-28 At Halftime

The Boston Celtics are down 34-28 at halftime against the Miami Heat on Thursday, though it's clear both team lack a sense of urgency. Miami's Big 3 of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have played a combined zero minutes on the night, with the Heat having already wrapped up the top seed in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics are also short-staffed, having already secured their spot in the postseason with an Atlantic Division title.

Neither team is shooting particularly well, though the Celtics have been especially bad. Boston took over six minutes into the first quarter to put it's first points on the board, and are shooting just 31.3 percent from the floor. Marquis Daniels, of all people, leads the team with eight points so far, despite averaging just 2.9 per game for the season.

The Celtics have stay relatively close to the Heat thanks to 13 forced turnovers, and the fact that Miami is only shooting 40.5 percent from the floor themselves. James Jones leads the Heat with nine points on the night, all coming on 3-for-3 shooting from beyond the 3-point arc.
