The Boston Celtics were dead Thursday night in the desert, but the Phoenix Suns forgot to bury the body.
Phoenix jumped out to an early 22-point lead and held a double-digit edge for nearly the entire game. But Kyrie Irving exploded in the fourth quarter to bring Boston to within striking distance, and Marcus Morris splashed a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds to go to send the game to overtime.
