The Boston Celtics stole a win from the Indiana Pacers in the final seconds of the game.

Boston forward Jeff Green scored the game winning basket with under a second to play.

"I wanted the ball, but I had to be a great decoy," Green said. "Like always, all the attention went to Paul and Kev; they doubled Kev on the pass and Kev made a great pass over the double team. I went up, tried to go up strong and it went in."

The 83-81 victory extended the C's winning streak to four games and secured the head-to-head series with the Pacers.
