Wins have not come easy for the Boston Celtics in the past two weeks and the same rang true on Tuesday night in Indiana. The visitors surrendered a 21-2 run midway through the fourth quarter, blowing a 17-point lead in the process before recovering in the final two minutes to hold on for a 114-111 win. Jayson Tatum led the way with 30 points while Gordon Hayward pitched in with 27 points and 10 rebounds for a Boston starting five that had five players finish in double figures.
