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

For the next two minutes, the teams traded buckets, with IN getting two baskets off of offensive rebounds as Thaddeus Young and Lance Stephenson both mixed it up IN the paint to keep the Pacers within striking distance.

Jayson Tatum contributed 16 points and Marcus Smart added 15 and the Celtics made their first 10 shots and improved the best record in the Eastern Conference to 26-7.

T'wolves 108, Blazers 107: Jimmy Butler powered through a recent bout of back spasms to score 37 points, sinking two free throws that gave Minnesota the lead with 2.5 seconds left. Irving scored 30 points on Tuesday on 12-of-23 shooting, including 5 of 8 from three, and none were bigger than the the pair of triples he hit in the closing minute to even give Rozier a chance at that steal.

Rockets 120, Jazz 99: Eric Gordon scored 17 of his season-high 33 points in the fourth to power a huge run that put Houston on top, and then cruised to its 14th straight win.

"It's a 48-minute game and we just lost our composure", IN coach Nate McMillan said of the poor execution.

Bryant thought he would "destroy" Jordan , but the outcome was exactly opposite of that. He's a very different player with a different mentality and mindset.

It sure looked like the Celtics were going to leave IN with a loss after blowing a seven-point fourth-quarter lead.

Hitting their first 10 shots from the floor, the Celtics led into the game's final minutes. When Rozier actually followed his old teammate's advice earlier this season, Kyrie Irving quipped Rozier "finally dunked on the break".

"We have to figure out a way to get off to better starts".

Kent Bazemore's two late baskets among his 16 points halted a Miami rally as the host Atlanta Hawks beat the Heat 110-104.

Pacers: The Celtics' 18-point lead in the first quarter was Indiana's largest first-quarter deficit this season. Boston's 38 first-quarter points were the most points IN has allowed IN that period this season. We dug ourselves the deepest hole you can imagine and again, fought our way back like clockwork, but we come up short again.
