Webster hit a 3-pointer at the shot clock buzzer to make it 91-89, but after Ray Allen missed again Webster stepped on the sideline with 1:03 left, giving the ball back to Boston. Rondo sliced through the lane but missed a layup, then Webster worked off a pick by Howard to hit a jumper from the top of the key that tied it 91-all with 34 seconds left.
Pierce dribbled down the clock before missing a runner, but Rondo got the rebound. After a timeout, Pierce drove and Miller drew a charge, giving the Blazers the ball with 1.1 seconds left.
Miller threw an alley-oop to Aldridge on the inbounds pass, but he left it on the front of the rim and the game went to overtime.
NOTES: With Portland coach Nate McMillan nursing a ruptured Achilles tendon, assistant Monty Williams was up most of the game calling out plays and interacting with the officials. McMillan hurt himself when he took part in a practice so his banged-up team would have enough bodies to play 5-on-5. ... Celtics F Brian Scalabrine was out with a sore right shoulder. ... The Celtics are 5-0 against the Northwest Division.
