Article Summary:

Dennis Schroder stripped the ball from Kemba Walker and scored on a layup with 8.5 seconds to help the Thunder rally to beat the Boston Celtics 105-104.

With Gilgeous-Alexander sitting for the first time this season with a hip bruise that he suffered in their win at New York on Friday, Chris Paul had 28 points and seven assists to help OKC overcome an 18-point first-half deficit. The Celtics have lost four straight at home for the first time since 2015.

Gordon Hayward led the Celtics with 24 points. Smart then kept alive a loose ball on the Thunder’s next possession to help start Celtics’ fast break.

The Celtics built a 63-45 lead late in the second quarter, but got sloppy over the final 1:08 of the half as OKC closed with a 7-0 run to stay within striking distance.
