Another Boston Team Wins in Miraculous Last Second Fashion

Terry Rozier's steal and layup with 1.2 seconds remaining Monday gave Boston a 112-111 National Basketball Association victory over the Indiana Pacers after the Celtics squandered a 19-point lead. 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.

While Irving gets all the attention, he is not the only MVP candidate on this team, and could even be in second place at this point in the season.

Boston then fouled Victor Oladipo, who converted two free throws to yet again increase Indiana's lead to four, 111-107 with 0:19 to go.

"We got fortunate. Terry made a great play", Boston head coach Brad Stevens said.

With 4.3 seconds left, Bogdanovic, who would have nearly certainly been fouled had he simply held onto the ball, threw a high pass intended for Victor Oladipo near midcourt but Rozier intercepted it and had an open court to his game-winning slam. 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.

- Al Horford notched his eighth double-double of the season with 14 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists.

"We go into this diamond defense, with Kyrie (Irving) and (Marcus) Smart on the first trap", he said, as seen on NBC Sports Boston's Celtics postgame coverage.

Darren Collison finished with 15 points, and Domantas Sabonis scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds. "We gave ourselves a chance to win and we competed with the best team in the Eastern Conference". With less than a minute remaining, Oladipo hit a 3-pointer that gave IN its first lead of the game and a layup that stretched the Pacers' lead to 107-102 with 31 seconds left.

"It's a tough, tough loss", Oladipo said after IN lost to Boston for the fifth straight time.

The Indiana Pacers (17-13) are back at home on Monday as they host the Boston Celtics (25-7), who now have the best record in the Eastern Conference. "We just have to continue to get better". "It was just a insane game".

Irving stepped out to the left corner for a 3-pointer, cutting the IN lead to 107-105 with 27.5 seconds left.

Indeed, the Pacers had the Celtics on the brink of defeat unlike any team Boston has been able to rally back from, this season. It's the third time since 2000 the Celtics have won despite an opponent making 22-plus free throws. He scored the final seven points in a 13-2 Pacers run, with the C's only retort an Irving jumper after three straight misses.

Frank Kaminsky equalled his season-high tally of 24 points in Charlotte's 109-91 victory over the New York Knicks.
