The Boston Celtics dropped their 2nd straight game last night when they lost to the blazing Miami Heat 115-107 at the American Airlines Arena. Boston, whose captain Paul Pierce is out with a bruised left heel, opened their season with a close loss to the NY Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
Last night Miami led by as much as 20 points over the hapless Celtics in the 3rd quarter. But the odds on favorite for the 2012 NBA championship blew that lead in the 4th quarter when the Celtics, led by veteran guard Keyon Dooling's 18 points off the bench, mounted a strong comeback.
Rookie Heat guard Norris Cole drew chants of "MVP!" from the crowd when he came off the bench to score 14 of his 20 points in the 4th quarter. Cole's clutch jump shots in the final minute of the game sealed the win for Miami, who are now 2-0.
Miami Heat star LeBron James finished the night with 26 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists.
But it was his baby mama, Savannah Brinson, who put on a show in the stands with her inappropriate game attire. Gabrielle Union (D. Wade's fiancee) and Adrienne Williams (Chris Bosh's wife) both dressed respectfully, but Savannah's outfit was the talk of Twitter.com.
Before she left home to attend the game, Savannah tweeted a pic of herself wearing a black miniskirt which was more suitable for a cheerleader than for the conservative hometown girl from Cleveland, Ohio.

Twitter comedian Kevin Hart seems to have found a girl more his size. The 'Think Like A Man' star has a Napoleon complex which makes it hard for him to stay in a stable relationship for very long. The couple were spotted spending his money in high end stores on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills yesterday. We don't know her name, but hopefully she is stacking his chips because he will soon tire of her and move on to the next breezy.

The lovely Paula Patton stopped by 'The Today Show' in NYC to promote her movie 'Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol' this morning. It must be hard on Robin Thicke to be known more for being Paula's husband than his music. I couldn't name one song he sings, but I know who his gorgeous wife is.

Troubled singer Chris Brown, 22, was spotted with a few girlfriends leaving a shoe store on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood yesterday. If that's his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, above, she has certainly seen better days. The poor girl looks thin, unkempt and harried -- as if someone might be mistaking her for a punching bag. Brown, who was sporting a lttle teddy bear on his denim jacket pocket, strolled behind his burly bodyguards carrying two big boxes of shoes that the store comp'd Brown with. Chris and his friends left in his new pimped out bright orange convertible Chevy Impala (not pictured).
This little girl is too grown. Singer/actress Willow Smith, 11, wore a face full of makeup while out in NYC today. The precocious daughter of actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, stopped and posed for photographers as she made her way out of her NYC hotel.

Actress Paula Patton covers the November 2011 issue of JEZEBEL magazine, which is based out of Atlanta. Patton, 35, is in heavy demand these days due to her coveted role as a beautiful secret spy in the action thriller Mission: Impossible, Ghost Protocol, starring Tom Cruise.
Patton says she didn't have much confidence in snagging the plum role. So when she was called in to audition, she told the producers, "Come on, guys, don't waste my time!"
The film hits theaters Dec. 15. The 'Precious' star is well-known in the black community, but this role is expected to place her squarely on Hollywood's A-list.
Despite her many successes, Patton, who is married to R&B singer Robin Thicke, and has a toddler, Julian; reveals she prefers living in a fantasy world, because she "doesn't like reality very much."
This seems strange coming from a woman who, on the outside, seems to have everything. "I love my son; I love my husband; and then I want to take them into my dream world," she told JEZEBEL.
"My dream is Paris, and good food, and beautiful sunsets, and no worries, and no stress and life floating on a cloud!"
JEZEBEL magazine's Nov. 2011 issue featuring the 50 Most Beautiful Atlantans is on newsstands now!
