BOSTON (AP) - Paul Pierce had 27 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists and the Boston Celtics extended their winning streak to seven games with a 118-114 triple overtime victory over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.

Boston's win also ended Denver's winning streak at nine games.

Pierce made a tying 3-pointer in the second overtime to make it 107-107 and extend the game.

Kevin Garnett had 20 points and grabbed 18 rebounds while Jason Terry scored a season-high 26 points off the bench.

The Celtics also stayed unbeaten since point guard Rajon Rondo's season-ending knee injury.

Terry hit a 3-pointer with 1:33 remaining in the third overtime to put the Celtics ahead 116-113.
