MIAMI _ Luol Deng scored 23 points, James Ennis scored 10 of his 16 in the fourth quarter and the Miami Heat ended a five-game home losing streak with a 100-84 victory over the Boston Celtics on Sunday night.

Norris Cole scored 15 and Mario Chalmers had 11 points and 10 assists for Miami.

Tyler Zeller scored 22 for Boston, which had won three straight. Jeff Green and Kelly Olynyk added 13.

It was the first time in 154 games that Miami didn’t have any of its former Big Three _ Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh or LeBron James. Wade sat with a bruised right knee, Bosh missed his fifth straight game with a left calf strain and James now plays for Cleveland, which visits Miami on Christmas.
