      BOSTON (AP) – Kevin Garnett chased down Joakim Noah and tipped
the ball away from behind with 14 seconds left on Friday night and
the Boston Celtics held on to beat the Chicago Bulls 110-105.
      Garnett scored 16 points with 10 rebounds, and he also drew an
offensive foul on Derrick Rose with Boston nursing a three-point
lead in overtime. Ray Allen, who scored 25 points, followed with a
layup on an assist from Rajon Rondo to make it a five-point game.
      After Luol Deng tipped in Kyle Korver's airball, Chicago had a
chance to cut it to one point when Noah tried to take off on a fast
break. But Garnett ran him down and tipped the ball to Big Baby
Davis; he hit the foul shots to clinch it.
      Noah had 26 points and 12 rebounds for Chicago.
