Kyrie gets 26, Tatum adds 19 and Smart does it all as the Celtics complete comeback of the year (videos)
Kyrie Irving got 26 points to go with four rebounds, four assists and two steals as the Celtics came back from 26 points and beat the Rockets in TD Garden. Al Horford made game-winning bucket and Jayson Tatum just seconds earlier scored two of his 19 points with Celtics getting two straight possesions after James Harden's back-to-back offensive fouls on Marcus Smart. Smart filled the boxscore with 13 points, six rebounds, five dimes, three blocks and two steals.
Terry Rozier scored 13 points off the bench, along with five rebounds and two steals. He was one of the reasons for Celtics successful second half comeback with Boston playing some great defense. Rockets made just nine shots en route to 36 points in the second half as we've got to see this gritty Celtics defense.
