Miami had three out of the top five and six out of the top 10 in their seven point win over Boston last night.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

First Star

Goran Dragic (MIA) 15.2

Dragic led Miami with a game-high 22 points on eight-of-16 shooting, going two-of-three from outside and four-of-six from the charity stripe. He also had a game-high tying seven helpers (with Mario Chalmers) and five rebounds, registering an even rating in 37:20.

Second Star

Phil Pressey (BOS) 13.4

Pressey did all his damage in 18:10 off the bench for the Celtics. He scored 11 points on four-of-six shooting, going three-of-four from the line. He added six assists, five rebounds, a block and a steal, going a team-high tying plus-9.

Third Star

Tyler Zeller (BOS) 12.0

Boston's only starter in the Five Stars finished with 10 points in 18:49. He was a very efficient four-of-five from the floor and made both of his foul shot attempts. He also had a Celtics-high eight rebounds (three offensive), two helpers and one block, finishing up at minus-4 on the night.

Fourth Star

Udonis Haslem (MIA) 10.6

Miami's last old man standing played a game high 38:09, and registered the only double double of the game, with 12 points and 12 rebounds. He shot five-of-nine from the field and two-of-three from the line, as well as three steals and an assist in his start at center in relief of the be-stitched Hassan Whiteside.

Fifth Star

Tyler Johnson (MIA) 10.5

Johnson totaled 19:51 in relief, mostly at shooting guard for Chalmers (Rio has seen better days, but he's not the DotN). Johnson, went five-of-eight and made his only three-point attempt. He also went one-of-two from the line. Along with his 12 points, he pitched in with four rebounds, two steals, and a blocked shot, totaling a game-high plus-13 rating.

The Rest

Jae Crowder (BOS) 9.4

Brandon Bass (BOS) 9.1

Luol Deng (MIA) 7.4

Henry Walker (MIA) 7.4

James Ennis (MIA) 7.1

Michael Beasley (MIA) 4.5

Gigi Datome (BOS) 4.5

Marcus Smart (BOS) 4.3

Evan Turner (BOS) 4.2

Avery Bradley (BOS) 3.0

Kelly Olynyk (BOS) 2.8

Mario Chalmers (MIA) 1.4

Jonas Jerebko (BOS) 0.8

Shabazz Napier (MIA) 0.5

Gerald Wallace (BOS) -1.4

Dog of the Night

Isaiah Thomas (BOS) -5.1

The worst night by far belonged to Isaiah Thomas, who wasn't as bad as he was invisible aside from going two-for-seven from the field. Along with his four points in 19:55 off the bench, he also missed all three of his foul shots, earned two personal fouls, and turned the ball over three times.

Miami manages to hold onto the seventh-seed for now, with the Atlanta Hawks ready to host on Friday night. For more on the Celtics, go to CelticsBlog. Peachtree Hoops has your Hawks.
