Heat equals NBA futility mark after miserable halftime against Celtics

The heat turned freezing.

Beginning their Game 4 at the TD Garden with the Celtics 2-1 up in the series, the Heat struggled through a historically poor first half before going 57-33 during the team’s 102-82 loss on Monday night went on break.

The 33 points scored for the lowest points Miami has scored in a half this season shares the shame with the first half of their 95-78 loss on Nov. 4. The Celtics’ stifling defense was also the culprit for that non-appearance.

Coupled with their worst half of the season, the Heat went 3:22 without a field goal in the first quarter, the longest without a field goal to start a playoff game in 25 years.

With Tyler Herro injured, Kyle Lowry and Bam Adebayo struggled to make up for his lack of scoring chances. The duo only scored 6 points combined in 3-9 shooting. Jimmy Butler shot a paltry 3-14 from the field for six points.

Jayson Tatum’s 24 points in the first half fueled the Celtics’ offense.
