Pacers Steal Game From Celtics In Boston

Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier

After Sunday's exacerbation, the Celtics point guard hinted he may take an extended break to make sure his knee is healthy for the playoffs.

Indiana's Victor Oladipo scored 20 of his 27 points in the second half. While the team does trail Toronto by 3.5 games after losing to Indiana Sunday night, the Celtics have the second-best record in the East and lead the Pacers by seven games.

"I think we've shown it night in, night out", said Irving.

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.

"We talk about being calm, and being poised", said IN coach Nate McMillan, who had already seen his team blow last-minute lead to Boston when the teams met IN December. It's unfortunate timing after Horford scored 20 points and pulled down 8 rebounds on Thursday.

Theis remained out of the game, although there were only a few plays left. Luckily, Terry Rozier's last second shot was off-balance and the Pacers held on for the victory. "I think he got kneed, but I don't think that that's anything more than a knee-to-knee or knee-to-thigh - right above his knee".

Turner gave the Pacers the lead again at the low post and, after Rozier's miss, IN hit a pair of foul shots to take a four-point lead. "I just got to do that".

"He got hot", Smart said of Oladipo.

Boston inbounded the ball to Rozier, who took a long 2-pointer that bounced off the near side of the rim. Everyone followed his lead, including 16 points and six rebounds off the bench from Rozier, and a nine-point fourth from Tatum. "It's aching a little bit more than I wanted it to now, so I'm taking the necessary time".

"Well that is going to be a priority anyway", said Stevens.

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. It's the same knee that required surgery during the 2015 offseason and has caused him to miss a handful of games this season.
