NBA Wrap: Celtics stun Heat with buzzer-beater
Share This Post

The Sixers' thrilling double-overtime loss in Cleveland didn't provide the only dramatic finish Saturday night (see Instant Replay). Here's a look around the league:

Celtics stun Heat

MIAMI -- Jeff Green hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Boston Celtics to a 111-110 victory over the Miami Heat on Saturday night.

Gerald Wallace's pass found Green in the corner, where he unleashed a shot over the outstretched hands of LeBron James. The shot was confirmed after a video review, giving the Celtics their third consecutive win.

Wallace hit a layup with 1.6 seconds remaining and fouled Dwayne Wade with 0.6 seconds remaining. Wade missed the first free throw and deliberately bounced the second attempt off the backboard.

Green finished with 24 points and was 5 of 8 on 3-pointers. Avery Bradley scored 17 points and Jordan Crawford added 15 for the Celtics.

James led Miami with 25 points and 10 assists. Chris Bosh had 20 points and Wade finished with 18.

Pacers remain perfect

NEW YORK -- Paul George scored 24 points and the Indiana Pacers improved the NBA's only undefeated record and the best start in franchise history to 7-0 by beating the Brooklyn Nets 96-91 Saturday night.

David West added 18 points and hit the clinching free throws for the Pacers, who had won their first six games in 1970-71, when they played in the ABA. They have the longest winning streak to open an NBA season since both the Lakers and New Orleans were 8-0 in 2010-11, according to STATS.

Roy Hibbert finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds, and Lance Stephenson also scored 15 points.

Deron Williams and Joe Johnson each had 17 points for the Nets, who fell to 2-4 and lost at home for the first time this season. Brook Lopez scored 16 and Paul Pierce had 15.

Clippers bury Rockets

HOUSTON -- Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick scored 22 points each to rally the Los Angeles Clippers to a 107-94 win over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night.

Jamal Crawford had 16 points, Chris Paul added 14 points and 13 assists and DeAndre Jordan had 12 points and 18 rebounds for the Clippers. Griffin also had seven rebounds and Redick shot 8 for 15 from the field.

Dwight Howard had 21 points and eight rebounds for the Rockets, but was just 5 for 11 on free throws. Chandler Parsons added 23 points and eight rebounds, while Patrick Beverley scored 19 points.

James Harden, who was a game-time decision with a bruised left foot, had 12 points on 4-for-15 shooting.
