The Boston Celtics' 2021-22 season began Wednesday night vs. the New York Knicks and right off the bat, we were treated to a thriller.

The Knicks led by four with nine seconds left in the game when Jaylen Brown drilled a long 3-pointer to bring the C's within one.

New York hit a shot on their next possession to go up three. As the clock winded down, Celtics guard Dennis Schroder dished it to Marcus Smart who drilled the game-tying 3 at the buzzer to force overtime.

The Celtics went on to fall 138-134 in double overtime, but Brown and Smart did their part. Brown finished with a career-high 46 points while Smart added 15 points, eight rebounds and six assists.
