Kyrie Irving Leads Celtics to Epic 22-Point Comeback in Phoenix

Kyrie Irving Leads Celtics to Epic 22-Point Comeback in Phoenix

Boston kept on the pressure and moved within 98-95 on Irving's 3-pointer with 35.9 seconds left and Brown's basket with 7.3 seconds left moved the Celtics within one.

Go ahead and put an asterisk on the victory, if you're so inclined, but you can't help but wonder if the Boston Celtics found the spark they've so desperately been searching for during Thursday's improbable come-from-behind victory in Phoenix.

Then, things started getting weird.

Trailing by 12 points with approximately three minutes remaining, the Celtics began to heat up, led by Kyrie Irving.

Irving led the way with 39 points, including 18 in the fourth quarter and overtime.

Lo and behold, the Celtics made a gallant run to send the game to overtime and eventually snatch the win on the road, 116-109. Warren hit two free throws, then Morris took a pass from a double-teamed Irving for the tying 3. Phoenix led 32-13 after 12 minutes.

Sure, it was against a rebuilding team that ranks last in the National Basketball Association in point differential, but there's something to be said about recovering from a awful start to post a thrilling road win.

That team was the same Celtics squad that routinely overcame double-digit deficits during last year's 55-win campaign.

The Celtics shot a meager 21.7 percent from the field in the half - 10-for-46 - and committed 10 turnovers. Jayson Tatum, Al Horford, Gordon Hayward and Brown were a combined 0 for 15. The Suns have been the most aggressive in that regard, having started pursuing him even before firing general manager Ryan McDonough on October 8.

Celtics will take on the Jazz Friday before closing out their five-game west coast swing in Portland on Sunday.
