Pippen: Celtics' chemistry has come together (1:20)

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Pacers practice in Indianapolis ends today with the team singing happy birthday to Bojan Bogdanovic, who turns 30 years old today.

Kyrie's 37 points carries Celtics to comeback win (2:28)
Kyrie: 'It's just been a long journey' to playoffs (0:56)
Tatum knocks down go-ahead 3 in final minute (0:20)

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Pacers coach Nate McMillan sums up what happened to his team in the fourth quarter with one sentence: "We have to finish."

Tatum throws down emphatic slam (0:17)

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

After Boston went on an 8-0 run with Kyrie Irving on the bench to pull within 4, he's come in and hit back to back 3s to put Boston ahead 84-82 with 5:25 to go. The Pacers have hit another cold spell - 8 straight misses, several of which bounced around the rim before falling off.

Turner rejects Tatum (0:22)

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum have a combined 48 points on 21-36 shooting. The rest of the Celtics have scored 30 combined, and are shooting 12-33.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Al Horford is trying to make his presence felt here in the fourth quarter. Already has two quick buckets - his first of the game. Boston has pulled back to within six.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

After making his first three shots of this series, Marcus Morris has missed 15 of his 17 shot attempts since then. Morris has tailed off over the second half of the season, but Boston needs production from him with Marcus Smart sidelined indefinitely.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

The Pacers have a 79-68 lead after three quarters here in Boston. After Indiana scored eight points in the third quarter in Game 1, the Celtics have dug themselves a hole in Game 2 with a 16-point third quarter of their own.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Al Horford is playing tonight, but he's clearly not right. In 21 minutes he's only taken two shots, and he hasn't scored. Understandably looks a step or two slow, too, after being questionable to play with an illness.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Celtics worked hard to get Bojan Bogdanovic onto Kyrie Irving for the final possession, and it went as Boston expected it would — with Irving driving and hitting a runner off the glass to make it Celtics 52, Pacers 50 at halftime.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Thaddeus Young has already taken more shots (10) than he did all of Game 1 (8). And after not taking a single 3 in Game 1, he's already taken 4. Pacers have made a bunch of concerted decisions to try to create more offense, and so far they are working.

Tatum explodes for dunk (0:18)

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Couple notable adjustments from the Pacers: trying to get shots off earlier, and inserting Aaron Holiday into the rotation in place of TJ Leaf. Really like the idea of Holiday playing over Leaf, as Indiana needs as many shot creators as it can get.
