Rockets Vs. Celtics Score: Houston Headed To Overtime In Boston

The Houston Rockets led by as many as 10 points in the fourth quarter against the Celtics but couldn't hold the lead and head to overtime with the game tied at 84-84.

Ray Allen's three-pointer from the corner with just 35 seconds remaining put the Celtics on top 84-82. After a Luis Scola miss, Rajon Rondo got loose on the break but missed a wide open layup that was rebounded by the Rockets' Kyle Lowry who pushed the ball into the frontcourt. The ball eventually ended up in the hands of Goran Dragic who tied the game with a jumper with just three seconds remaining. Ray Allen's jump shot at the buzzer clanged off the back rim sending the game into overtime.
