BOSTON, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Paul Pierce notched a triple-double and hit a go-ahead basket in the second overtime Sunday, helping Boston snap a six-game skid with a 100-98 win over Miami.
Pierce finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists as the Celtics logged their first win since Jan. 14 despite the absence of all-star guard Rajon Rondo.
Kevin Garnett contributed 24 points and 11 boards for Boston, which learned before the game that Rondo -- the NBA's leader in assists -- will likely miss the rest of the season with a torn knee ligament.
LeBron James fired in 34 points, grabbed 16 rebounds, handed out seven assists and made three steals for Miami, which saw its four-game winning streak ended.
