(TSX / STATS) -- MIAMI -- The Boston Celtics were about to erase another double-digit deficit and extend their winning streak when two fortunate bounces from a Dion Waiters' 3-point attempt helped squash the rally.

Waiters' shot late in the fourth quarter bounced off the rim, the top of the backboard and through the net as the Miami Heat held off the Celtics for a 104-98 victory Wednesday night.

The win snapped the Celtics' 16-game winning streak. The loss was Boston's first since a 108-100 defeat at Milwaukee on Oct. 18.
