INDIANAPOLIS — Victor Oladipo didn't fib when he insisted that if his Indiana Pacers were down by two to end a game that he wouldn't go for the tie. He'd pull up for 3.
Saturday, in the second game of a back-to-back against the projected best team in the Eastern Conference, Oladipo trotted down the floor and drilled the long ball over Al Horford with 3.4 seconds left of what became a 102-101 victory over the Boston Celtics.
He then made a steal of the inbounds pass from Gordon Hayward to seal it.
