INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tyler Zeller scored 18 points, three other Celtics added 16 and Boston snapped the Indiana Pacers’ seven-game winning streak with a 93-89 victory Saturday night.
The Celtics have won four straight as they continue to make a late playoff push.
George Hill scored a season-high 30 points for Indiana. C.J. Miles had 13.
Boston took control with a 17-4 run that started late in the first quarter and ended midway through the second with a 32-20 lead.
The Pacers spent the rest of the night playing catch-up. They finally closed to 91-89 on Rodney Stuckey’s 3-pointer with 5.8 seconds left, but Brandon Bass made two free throws to seal it.
