Celtics late rally stuns Pacers in Indiana

When Kyrie Irving hit a 28-footer with ten seconds to play, the Pacers lead was cut to one, 111-110.

Leading by one and needing to take fouls to close out the game, an errant pass by Bojan Bogdanovic during a keepaway moment resulted in a steal from Terry Rozier, who took it the length of the court and put in the game-winning dunk, spoiling Indiana's 19-point comeback. As for Irving, he's starting to crush, scoring at least 30 points in three of his last four games, although tonight's line was lacking in many ways. The Celtics played the foul game, getting a layup by Marcus Smart and a 3-pointer from Irving to keep it a risky one-possession game.

Coming out of a Boston timeout, Lance Stephenson quickly disrupted the Celtics, forcing a quick turnover as IN got the ball back into the hands of Oladipo, who once again connected on a scoop layup. "Then they threw the ball to Bogdanovic and he made the pass and I was able to get my hand on it", Rozier said.

With Rozier's dunk, the Celtics secured the win, 112-111. The Pacers tied it for the first time since the opening tip at 100 on Oladipos three-point play with less than two minutes left in the game.

But for Boston, Kyrie Irving was an almost unstoppable offensive force, racking up 30 points and passing out four assists as the Celtics managed steal a win. "We gave ourselves a chance to win and we competed with the best team in the Eastern Conference".

Irving scored 30 points for Boston, which trailed 107-102 after Oladipo's basket with 31 seconds remaining.

Timberwolves 108, Blazers 107: Jimmy Butler powered through a recent bout of back spasms to score 37 points, sinking the tying and go-ahead free throws for Minnesota with 2.5 seconds left. IN is coming off of a 109-97 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday and will be on the second night of a back-to-back. Boston's 38 first-quarter points were the most points IN has allowed IN that period this season.

It was the most IN had allowed IN the first quarter this season and their largest first-quarter deficit as well. The 61.5 percent shooting from beyond the arc was a season-best for Boston.

Now at 26-7 on the season and 13-4 on the road, the Celtics enjoyed their most improbable win of the year.

At Charlotte, reserve Frank Kaminsky scored 24 points and the host Hornets snapped a three-game losing streak with a 109-91 victory over NY.
