Best overtime game: Jan. 27 vs. Heat (2 OTs)
The category may seem arbitrary until you consider the Celtics have played nine games that have gone to overtime in their first 52. Four of those games have featured multiple overtimes. The triple-overtime win over the Nuggets was great, but I’m partial to the double-OT thriller over the Heat. Rondo was out. Ray Allen was back. The Celtics had lost six in a row. The game also featured the biggest emotional turn that maybe any team has faced this season. Minutes after the victory, the Celtics found out that Rondo was lost for the season with a torn ACL. Pierce found out while doing a TV interview. The look on Rivers’s face (pictured) says it all.
