Celtics rally late, overtake Clippers in overtime 139-134

BOSTON (AP) The way the Boston Celtics are scoring right now, they may want to try bottling a little of it before they leave for the All-Star break.

Whatever it is, it has the Celtics looking like a probable playoff team heading into the second half of the season.

Isaiah Thomas had 36 points and 11 assists, including a fade away jumper that sent the game to an extra period, to help the Boston Celtics overtake the Los Angeles Clippers 139-134 in overtime on Wednesday night.
