    导出博客文章MIAMI -- Isaiah Thomas drew blood from Justise Winslow. Other than that, most of
    Miamis biggest problems were self-inflicted.And the Boston Celtics reaped the
    benefits.Thomas scored 23 points before getting ejected, Avery Bradley added 20
    and the Celtics led by 22 points in the first half before hanging on to beat the
    Heat 105-95 on Sunday night.I thought we answered their runs well, Celtics coach
    Brad Stevens said. You knew they were going to come. ... Thats a hard-playing
    team.Al Horford had 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to help the
    Celtics beat Miami for the fifth consecutive time.Were playing well, Horford
    said. It shows we can close out games on the road.Miami turned the ball over 23
    times, leading to 24 Boston points. And the Heat went 6 for 14 from the foul
    line in the fourth quarter, 14 for 25 in the game to further cement themselves
    as the NBAs worst free-throw-shooting team this season.Every time we had an
    opportunity, we coughed it up right as the momentum would shift, Heat coach Erik
    Spoelstra said. Thats one of our most inefficient games of the year.Goran Dragic
    led all scorers with 31 points for Miami. Hassan Whiteside finished with 23
    points and 17 rebounds, all but one of those rebounds coming in the second
    half.Thomas was ejected with 3:02 left for elbowing Winslow in the face,
    bloodying the Heat forward and being assessed with a flagrant-2 after a
    review.Winslow needed sutures postgame, but said he didnt think Thomas had
    intent. Neither did Stevens.(Referee) Tony Brothers didnt think it was a
    flagrant-2 but he has to go with what they say, Thomas said. Im happy we won but
    Im disappointed that they kicked me out. Theres no reason for that.Winslow
    missed both resulting free throws -- part of that season-long Miami problem --
    but the Heat seemed sparked nonetheless.In just over a minute after Thomas
    ejection, the Heat had what was a 12-point deficit down to 97-93. Dragic
    connected on a 3-pointer from the right corner with 2:04 remaining and Tyler
    Johnson added a free throw not long afterward.But the Heat got no closer.Weve
    got to figure out a way to get that second-half intensity in the first half,
    Winslow said.TIP-INSCeltics: Bostons 22-point lead was the biggest deficit the
    Heat have faced at home this season. Utah led Miami by 21. The Celtics also led
    by 19 at Miami earlier this season. ... Former Heat guard Gerald Green (sore
    left hip) was sidelined. ... The Celtics turned Miamis first five turnovers into
    12 points.Heat: Dragic was 5 for 6 on 3s. ... Wayne Ellington (hamstring) was
    out. His absence made Josh Richardson a starter, giving Miami its ninth lineup.
    ... Dion Waiters (groin) missed his 12th consecutive game. ... Whitesides third
    block gave him 457 with Miami, passing Joel Anthony for No. 4 in team
    history.ROAD WARRIORSLater this week, Boston will wrap up a stretch where 18 of
    its first 29 games came on the road. No team in the NBA has played fewer home
    games than the Celtics so far; Sacramento has also played 11, and San Antonio
    played its 12th on Sunday. Its part of it. Youve got to play 41 road games. Were
    playing a lot of ours early, Stevens said.NOT FREEThe Heat are on pace for the
    worst free-throw shooting season in franchise history. Sundays 14 for 25 effort
    dropped Miamis season percentage to .662. The 2004-05 Heat shot .672 for the
    franchise low mark.UP NEXTCeltics: Visit Memphis on Tuesday, as a three-game
    trip continues.Heat: Host Orlando on Tuesday, the next-to-last game in a
    six-game homestand.

    Vladimir Sobotka is no longer feeling good about his chances of rejoining the
    St. Louis Blues this season.Sobotka has spent the past two seasons in Russias
    Kontinental Hockey League and planned on returning to the NHL. But with one year
    left on his contract, Avangard Omsk and the KHL have made the process
    difficult.The 29-year-old forward said at media day for the World Cup of Hockey
    that while talks between camps are ongoing, hes no longer optimistic.Its been
    going on for five months, so Ive had enough of it, said Sobotka, who will play
    for the Czech Republic. Im not thinking about it..dddddddddddd Its just getting
    ready for workouts. I dont want to think about it anymore.NHL deputy
    commissioner Bill Daly said Wednesday in Washington that Sobotka was having
    issues getting back. Even with the year left on his contract, Blues general
    manager Doug Armstrong said the plan was for Sobotka to be back for the 2016-17
    season.In 381 NHL games, Sobotka has 35 goals and 88 assists for 123 points. He
    had a total of 72 points in the KHL over the past two seasons. ' ' '
