The Boston Celtics had their fair share of close games in the 2021-22 NBA season. Several went into overtime and not all of them broke the Celtics’ way. But there were also some pretty impressive wins carved out in extra periods, even if they did not do the legs of the team any favors in the 2022 NBA Playoffs for having played them.

Wear and tear concerns aside, the feeling of putting away a pesky opponent for good is a reward unto itself for the team and fans alike. The NBA in their wisdom recently assembled a video of some of the best overtime endings across the league last season, with the Celtics registering a few of those contests that were included.

Check out the clip embedded below to see which opponents (from the same division, oddly) that Boston stuck a dagger in late in overtime to secure a win for yourself.
