Celtics get late steal to rally past Pacers

  • Locked On Pacers 12/19 – “well, that sucks”

Terry Rozier jumped in front of a pass thrown by the Indiana Pacers' Bojan Bogdanovic at midcourt with four seconds left, got out in front of the break and dunked with 1.6 seconds as the C's pulled out a 112-111 win. Irving made a pair of 3-pointers in the final 30 seconds to keep the Celtics within striking distance.

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.

"Kyrie (Irving) and Marcus (Smart) had the first trap and Marcus was trying to yell to the referee, 'I'm fouling, I'm fouling!' but they didn't call it", Rozier said. Twelve points to honor Rozier's jersey number.

IN was paced by Oladipo's 38 points, 30 of which came after halftime. Al Horford flirted with a triple double, scoring 14 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out nine assists.

"That was one hell of a of a game to be a part of", Irving said.

Like old times: Aaron Rodgers strikes early in his return from collarbone
He outplayed Rodgers, who was picked off three times and sacked three times in his first game back from injury. Rodgers was not himself in his first game back from a broken collarbone, in more ways than one.

James Harden added 26 points, Clint Capela had 24 points and 20 rebounds and Gordon finished with a season-high seven three-pointers.

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

Oladipo gave the Pacers a 105-102 lead with an up-top 3-pointer with 52.2 seconds left. Oladipo followed with a scoop for his ninth straight point and a 107-102 IN lead with 31.3 seconds remaining.

"It's a tough loss, a tough tough loss. We just have to continue to get better".

Early on it looked Boston might coast to an easy win as the Celtics wasted little time Monday night showing why they have the best record in the Eastern Conference.

There are good starts to games, and then there was what we saw from the Boston Celtics who drained their first 10 shots of the night against IN on Monday night.

"It's a 48-minute game and we just lost our composure", IN coach Nate McMillan said of the poor execution. The Celtics 38 first-quarter points were the most the Pacers have allowed in a first quarter this season.

Irving stepped out to the left corner for a 3-pointer, cutting the IN lead to 107-105 with 27.5 seconds left. The Celtics have won four straight on the road against Indiana. The Celtics hit their first ten shots of the game and didn't miss until Jaylen Brown missed a three-pointer about eight minutes into the game.

While the Celtics boast an impressive 43.9% opponent field goal percentage (2nd), their defense does not help them capitalize on the possession battle.

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

Now the Jets are without Wilkerson in The Big Easy and will nearly certainly part ways with him in the coming months. While there would be $9 million in dead money, the Jets would save $11 million in cap space by releasing him.
