Miami failed in its quest to be the fourth NBA team ever to win 10 straight games by at least 10 points, however.

Meanwhile the Boston Celtics ran their streak up to 11.

Paul Pierce made a tiebreaking jumper with 0.4 seconds left, Amare Stoudemire's 3-pointer at the buzzer was ruled too late, and the Boston Celtics pulled out a thrilling 118-116 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday night.

Incidentally, the team they beat – the New York Knicks – are finally winning again overall.  They came into this game with a 16-10 record having won 8 of their last 10 games.  The Knicks odds of winning the 2011 NBA Championship are currently set at 20/1.
