Kyrie Irving leads the come back over Suns

It wasn’t the ideal start, it’s something clear. Boston couldn’t score more than 13 points against the worst team in the Western Conference during the first quarter. 

Opening the second half down 55-35, the Celtics mounted a hilarious comeback late in the fourth quarter. The team went from being down 14 with 3:30 left, to down eight with 90 seconds left, to down six with 40 seconds left.

Finally, with the team down 100-97 on its final possession, Marcus Morris scored from the line and the overtime was a reality.

Once the game hit overtime, Kyrie Irving took over. The Celtics won 116-109 after an overtime period in which Irving either scored or assisted.
