The Boston Celtics scored an impressive comeback win – rallying from a 22-point deficit to top the Phoenix Suns 116-109 in overtime.

Kyrie Irving led the way with a season high of 39 points – 18 of which came in the fourth quarter and overtime – while Marcus Morris forced the additional period with a clutch triple with just 1.1 seconds left in regulation.

The Oklahoma City Thunder cruised to a seventh straight victory with a 98-80 win over the Houston Rockets.

Paul George, who finished on 20 points, helped the Thunder build a 14-point lead by half-time, and the Rockets hardly got a look in after that.
