Isaiah Thomas scored 23 points to lead the Boston Celtics over Miami Heat 105-95 but he wasn't around at the end of the game to celebrate.

With 3:02 left in the game, Thomas was given a flagrant-2 foul for a elbow to Justise Winslow and got ejected from the game.

That's when Al Horford came to the rescue, scoring five consecutive points. He finished with 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Avery Bradely added 20.

The Celtics are now 15-12, good for third place in the Eastern Conference.
