The Boston Celtics escaped with a close win over the Indiana Pacers, but not without a few injury scares. Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, and Grant Williams all had some form of injury in the game in a bizarre occurrence. All three are important members of the rotation too, which made it a lot more scary.

That's a relief for all Celtics fans, to say the least. Their game against the Pacers felt… off from the beginning. Their vaunted defense wasn't on the same level today, miscommunicating on switches and other things. Then came the injuries, which were unusual due to how many happened in one game.

First, Marcus Smart limped off the court in the first half after spraining his ankle. He'd go on to play the rest of the game, but that wasn't the end of it for the Celtics. Jaylen Brown would also leave the game in the second half after getting hit on the head by a Pacers player. Then, Grant Williams inadvertently stepped on a Pacers player and injured himself in the process.

Individually, these injuries aren't anything notable (save for Brown's potential concussion, probably). However, the fact that three of them happened in one game, to just one team, is extremely bizarre. Luckily, no one was significantly hurt. However, the Celtics are likely going to rest up these guys to prevent them from aggravating anything.

The Celtics are poised to make a deep playoff run this season after an immaculate turn-around to their season. On the backs of a revamped defense and Jayson Tatum's stellar play, they have earned the first seed in the Eastern Conference with just a few games left. However, the leprechauns have ironically been unlucky when it comes to injuries so far. Boston fans are hoping that Robert Williams will return in time for the playoffs, and pray that their players don't get any other injuries in their last games.
