Article Summary:

The Saturday night national TV showcase this week did not disappoint, as the Houston Rockets escaped with a 111-110 overtime win over the Boston Celtics in one of the most thrilling games of the season.

By the final few minutes, the Rockets had taken control of the game, and would have won in regulation if it wasn’t for a miraculous buzzer beater by Jaylen Brown to send things to an extra frame.

Russell Westbrook led the Rockets with 41 points, eight rebounds and five assists, while Jayson Tatum continued his 30-point streak with a 32-point, 13-rebound effort for the Celtics. At the time, his ferocious putback slam late in the fourth seemed like it would be the exclamation point for the Rockets’ comeback win, but ended up a bit overlooked due to Brown’s heroics.
