The Tribune (SLO) - - Weather -

Kyrie Irv­ing and Mar­cus Mor­ris each had 20 points, and the Bos­ton Celtics ral­lied in the sec­ond half to beat the In­di­ana Pac­ers 84-74 on Sun­day to take a 1-0 lead in their first-round play­off se­ries.

The Pac­ers led by 11 points in the first half but scored just eight points in the third quar­ter. The Celtics cap­i­tal­ized and led by as many as 22 points in the fourth pe­riod.

Jayson Ta­tum fin­ished with 15 points, Al Hor­ford added 10 points and 11 re­bounds, and Gor­don Hay­ward had 10 points for the Celtics. It was the first play­off game since 2017 for Irv­ing and Hay­ward af­ter each missed last year’s post­sea­son with in­juries.

Cory Joseph had 14 points for the Pac­ers. Bo­jan Bog­danovic had 12 points and was the lone In­di­ana starter in dou­ble fig­ures.
