The Celtics (29-10) pulled off the biggest NBA comeback of the season, rallying from 26 points down in the third quarter and leading only once – on Al Horford’s basket with 3.7 seconds left in the game.
They had help in the most improbable win. First of all, the Rockets were severely shorthanded. Second, and probably more important, the NBA revealed Friday that the game’s two officials – Mark Lindsay injured his back in pregame warmups — missed a pair of traveling violations against Boston. Both noncalls led to the final two baskets of the wild night.
Saturday, Celtics coach Brad Stevens, asked about the two traveling calls said, “Yeah, I saw one of them.”
Afterward, Houston star James Harden, whose two offensive fouls in the backcourt as his team tried to inbound the ball, said the shortage of a ref had plenty to do with the Rockets’ fourth straight loss.
“Well, first of all how do you have two officials in a national game? … It’s unacceptable,” he said. “You can’t have two officials in a professional game. It changes the dynamic. Lot of grabbing, lot of holding. How else am I supposed to get open?”
Both teams had to play the game with two officials and the Rockets were victims as the Celtics, spurred by their sellout crowd, managed to come all the way back.
“We just didn’t stop believing,” said Terry Rozier, who said Kyrie Irving called the players together for “a special talk” at halftime.
