Trailing 100-93 with 4:28 left in the game, the Pacers went on a 14-2 run to take a five-point lead at 107-102 with 0:31 remaining. "I was kind of like a defensive back and I got to get the steal and the dunk".

Irving gave the Celtics late hope with a 3-pointer from the top of the circle with 9.3 seconds to play, cutting the deficit to 111-110. "Smart was trying to yell, 'I'm fouling, I'm fouling, ' but the ref never called it".

Boston led by as many as 19 points in the first quarter, but head coach Brad Stevens wasn't all that thrilled about the position his team was in so early. Kyrie Irving, who scored eight in the last 1:12, finished with 30 points. That being said, we are starting to see him embrace parts of his game that we did not get in Cleveland, and if he continues to play like this a grow as a player, he will be right up there with anyone in MVP consideration.

The league-leading Houston Rockets stretched their win streak to 14 games with a 120-99 rout of the visiting Utah Jazz as Eric Gordon scored 33 points, making a career-high seven three-pointers, while James Harden added 26 points, six rebounds and six assists and Chris Paul contributed 18 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists.

- Marcus Smart (15 points) posted a flawless 4-for-4 line from beyond the arc.

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

"It's a tough loss".

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've got to have a better start". We dug ourselves the deepest hole you can imagine and again, fought our way back like clockwork, but we come up short again. "We just have to keep on getting better".

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. But when Bogdanovic cut the Celtics lead to five points with a trey, Larkin answered with back-to-back hoops off a backdoor cut and a 15-footer. The Celtics were only three field goals made away from tying their season high for most baskets made in a game. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Celtics are 2.5-point road favorites versus the Pacers, who opened as 3.5-point home underdogs before the line dropped.
