NBA: Irving leads Celtics in OT rally past Suns

Kyrie Irving Led The Celtics Back From A 22-Point Deficit To Beat The Suns In Overtime

Two weeks ago, Boston's fearless forward knocked down a game-winning 3-pointer to complete a 16-point comeback in Oklahoma City. Known as an unabashed Celtics diehard, too, it's not hard to imagine a league executive needling Simmons or alerting him to the fact that things might not be so flawless with his favorite team.

"Unexpected early-season Celts subplot: Terry Rozier (restricted FA next summer) has been unhappy w/ his PT all season, word has gotten around the league, and everyone now knows the Celtics need to trade him... which, of course, makes it harder to trade him", he reports. Irving scored 18 points from the fourth quarter on to make the night possible.

For a team struggling to find its identity, Brad Stevens forced his guys to dig deep, stay focused and keep fighting.

"We just fell apart down the stretch". Easier said than done, considering how the first half - where all starters not named Kyrie Irving (3-of-10) went scoreless on 0-of-15 attempts - played its self out.

The Ramblers played on ACC team, Notre Dame, and fell 2-1. "So, now we are fighting for our lives", Tom Stone, soccer coach, said. Neither Colby nor Thomas submitted a bid to host the first round, Parsons said. "I think it's a good one for us".

"I talk to Terry quite a bit and I haven't heard any of those types of things, so I don't know how reliable any of the sources or rumors are", said Ainge. "He brings everything to the table you would think a really good player at that position brings", Stevens said. He fed Morris at the top of the 3-point arc, who then handed off to Kyrie Irving who had just streaked in from the backcourt.

The Celtics are 6-4 this season.

Brown's 3-pointer gave Boston a 112-109 lead with 2:05 left in overtime and Morris added a layup 26 seconds later.

But the Celtics will enter with renewed vigor and a fresh reminder of what they are capable of when they play to their abilities. "And that's even within the games".

Donald Trump Puts Victorious House Democrats On Notice
Trump had aggressively campaigned in the closing days of the race, his focus on boosting Republicans in states he carried in 2016. But the president received negative marks from voters on temperament and trustworthiness.

If they harness what they did in the second half against the Suns, then maybe we'll finally see longer glimpses of the team we expected to see this season.

"We're going to be OK, we're going to be fine". We're going to be OK, no matter what's going on out there.

Sure, an elite National Basketball Association team shouldn't need to dig itself out of a 22-point deficit against a lottery-bound opponent.
