IN went ahead by as many as nine, and had a 93-76 lead with 2:13 to play before Boston rallied to tie 95-all with 37 seconds left.
"He has an unwavering belief in that", said Boston'sKyrie Irving.
Marcus Morris drew an offensive foul on Oladipo during an inbounds play with 1.5 seconds left for a last-gasp chance, but Terry Rozier front-rimmed an off-balance shot, and the Pacers walked off as winners.
Meanwhile, the Celtics have been dealing with a variety of other injuries beyond Irving. "I thought they battled really hard today".
But that's where Celtics coach Brad Stevens found himself against IN even before Kyrie Irving stayed IN the locker room after halftime when his sore left knee flared up.
"I think [rest] will probably be the best thing, just instead of kind of hoping it gets better over the two or three days that it usually does", Irving said, via ESPN. After playing through discomfort in Houston, Irving sat out a visit to Chicago on Monday then returned for the Celtics' win in Minnesota on Thursday. He has had time to rest, which makes the soreness he is experiencing worrisome even if he is not anxious himself. Boston has essentially locked up a top-2 seed in the Eastern Conference already.
Indiana's depth in the frontcourt is so deep, former Celtic big man Al Jefferson is now the team's fifth big man behind Young, Booker, Myles Turner and Domantis Sabonis. He has been suffering knee soreness, but it is only due to tendinitis.
"I don't think it's anything serious, but we want Kyrie healthy and fresh", Ainge told the "Toucher and Rich" program.

When it comes to Kyrie Irving, Stevens is all about getting his star guard some rest and having him ready for the playoffs.
Even without Irving and Jaylen Brown (concussion), the Celtics should have no problem defeating these cellar-dwellers. "As we said if he could've kept going, but it was less than 100 percent that wouldn't have been worth it right now".
With Horford and Brown already sidelined along with Gordon Hayward, who hasn't played since breaking his leg in the first quarter of the season opener, the Celtics were without four members of their opening night starting five.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the intelligence material. At one point, Republicans considered erecting a wall in the committee's office to separate GOP and Democratic aides.
Players on this level who have suffered such an injury should have a one-year contract impacted, but not a multi-year deal. Sherman must perform to get paid, but also said he offered the Seahawks the opportunity to match the team-friendly deal.
Hardy had not wrestled since undergoing surgery in September, but was scheduled to begin training again this month. In a more serious case, Hardy was arrested in 2009 on charges of trafficking and possession of anabolic steroids.
