The Golden State Warriors' shot at history is over as their 54-game winning run at home was ended by the Boston Celtics.

The Warriors were aiming to beat San Antonio Spurs' best-ever start to a home campaign, but they were stunned by a 109-106 loss to the Celtics.

They now need to win five of their last six regulation games to break the NBA record of 72 set by the all-conquering 1995-96 Chicago Bulls side.

Meanwhile, LeBron James moved up the NBA all-time scorers list during the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-108 overtime win against the Atlanta Hawks.

James surpassed Oscar Robertson's tally to move up to 11th in the list with 26,711 points after scoring 29 in the victory over the Hawks.
