SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Paul Pierce scored 26 points and Courtney Lee provided the game-clinching free throws in overtime Monday, lifting the Boston Celtics over Utah 110-107.

Pierce scored six of his points in the extra frame and added eight assists to go with seven rebounds as the Celtics won for only the second time in six road games.

Lee finished with 14 points while Avery Bradley added 18.

The Jazz, meanwhile, suffered a rare home loss, falling to 21-7 on their home court as Randy Foye's last-gasp 3-point try fell short at the buzzer.

Gordon Hayward paced Utah with 26 points and Al Jefferson contributed 15 to go with 11 rebounds.
