Boston lost a heart-breaker in Indiana on Saturday night, 102–101, on a game-winning three-point shot by Victor Oladipo with less than five seconds on the clock.
Kyrie Irving missed a contested layup with about ten seconds to go before Oladipo got the rebound, went coast to coast, and stuck the game-winner around both Irving and Al Horford to send the fans in Indy into oblivion.
Boston started strong, outscoring Indiana by ten in the first quarter before Indiana won the second quarter by an identical margin. The two teams tied the third quarter and Boston had the two-point advantage in the fourth before Oladipo gave Indiana the one-point win. It was about as close as it could have been.
The Celtics get Sunday off to travel to Denver, where the road trip continues. The Celtics then go to Phoenix, Utah and Portland before returning home, where they most recently handed the Milwaukee Bucks their first loss of the season.
It was another night of balanced scoring for the Denver Nuggets, who exploded in the fourth quarter to defeat Utah by fifteen at the Pepsi Center on Saturday night.
Gary Harris led eleven Denver scorers with just twenty points and the Nuggets won their fourth game in a row and remained undefeated at home.
Denver trailed by nine late in the third quarter but made a little run to trim that deficit to five before the start of the fourth. The Nuggets won that final twelve minutes by twenty, led by starting point guard Jamal Murray playing alongside four bench players: Malik Beasley, Juancho Hermangomez, Trey Lyles and Mason Plumlee.
For the second consecutive game, Nikola Jokic failed to score in double-figures but he was hardly lost on Saturday night. He grabbed ten rebounds and dished out sixteen assists in the win.
The Nuggets’ only loss this season came in LA against LeBron and the Lakers in a game they led midway through the fourth. If it wasn’t for a cold shooting performance in the last six minutes, Denver would be unbeaten.

Free Boston Celtics vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction: Boston.
This will be an excellent game and I’m expecting the Nuggets to be favored by not much more than a point or two. The Celtics have been tested in the early going and look like a team that relishes these sort of challenges. I’m with Boston.
