The Celtics posted their most impressive victory of the 2011-12 season Tuesday night as they beat the Heat in Miami, 115-107.

Paul Pierce posted 27 points while Kevin Garnett recorded 24 and nine rebounds. Rajon Rondo was equally impressive with an 18-point, 15-assist night and backcourt mate Avery Bradley knocked down jumper after jumper to finish with 11.
LeBron James was the lone standout for Miami as he finished with 36 points.
It was the second straight victory for the Celtics over the Heat.
