Celtics Beat NY In Overtime
The Boston Celtics took a long, strange trip to stay alive in their playoff series with the New York Knicks on Sunday afternoon. A 97-90 overtime win at the Garden.
The C’s were ahead by 20 points. Then fell behind. Then caught up and tied the game at the end of regulation. And in OT, Jason “The Jet” Terry scored the last seven points to keep the Celtics season alive.
Paul Pierce finished with 29, Jeff Green 26.
NY leads the series 3-1 and game 5 is back in New York Wednesday night. No team in NBA history has come back from a 3-0 deficit.
