Heat lose to Celtics, officials

Well, nothing happened tonight.

Nothing in the standings sense, anyway. Everyone in the East’s super-soft middle lost.

So even though the Heat fell 110-105 in Boston, Miami remains in 8th in the East, now with just five games remaining — including a rematch with the Celtics in Miami on Wednesday. And it doesn’t appear Josh Richardson will play in that one either. Justise Winslow is closer to questionable.

Miami fell behind 20-4 early in this one, and a Goran Dragic-led surge wasn’t enough, especially after two questionable calls involving Kyrie Irving late in the fourth quarter.

Dragic had 30, Bam Adebayo had 19 and Dwyane Wade — in his last visit to TD Garden — scored 17.

Kyrie Irving had 25. That was expected. Not as expected — Marcus Smart with four three-pointers.

Some highlights:
