Celtics Win on Terry Rozier's Clutch Steal and Dunk

Kyrie Irving Boston Celtics Cory Joseph Indiana Pacers

"That was one hell of a game to be a part of", Irving said. We can be that good. "We got some stops on defense".

In one of the most gut-wrenching losses of the season, IN fumbled away what had been one of its finest comebacks of the season, falling 112-111 to the Boston Celtics on Tuesday (AEDT) at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Kyrie Irving led Boston with 20 points and scored 25 in a 108-98 win at in last month, the Celtics' fourth straight victory in the all-time series.

Minnesota's Jimmy Butler, who scored 37 points, hit two free throws with 2.5 seconds left and Damian Lillard missed a 3-point shot at the buzzer as the host Timberwolves held off Portland 108-107.

By the time Irving checked in with 5:23 left, though, the Pacers had run off four points of their own, cutting the Celtics lead yet again to five points, including an Oladipo drive off a Larkin turnover. "We just have to keep on getting better". His backup, rookie Domantas Sabonis, registered 17 points, eight rebounds and three blocks at Brooklyn as IN won the battle of the boards by 14.

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.

Two possessions later, Oladipo gave the Pacers their first lead of the night with a three pointer from the top of the key.

Boston scored 38 first-quarter points on Monday and shot 60 percent in the opening half. I thought they punched us in the mouth right from the start and we dug ourselves a hole.

The Celtics topped their season-best for 3-point field goal percentage, shooting 61 percent on 16 of 26 from beyond the arc. "You can't let yourself get into holes like that and fight your way out and expect to win those games".
