With a tough layup at the buzzer. Tyler Zeller nailed his first game winner, to push the Boston Celtics ahead of the visiting Utah Jazz for good by one point 84-85 as time expired.
“This is definitely my first [game winner] in the NBA,” he said. “I just wanted to make sure it was good. That’s really all I wanted to know. It was a great thing and Marcus put it right on the money, made my job easier. It’s a great feeling, especially [because] at the other end, Gordon had made the shot on me, so being able to come back and make the game winner is an unbelievable feeling and this was kind of a must-win for us so being able to get this win was big.’’
