(TSX / STATS) -- DALLAS -- The Boston Celtics have been comeback specialists during their win streak and their magic, led by Kyrie Irving's season-high 47 points, continued Monday night.

The Celtics needed another fourth-quarter rally and, for the first time this season, overtime to finally get past the Dallas Mavericks 110-102 and push their win streak to 16 in a row.

The Celtics (16-2) have now tied for the franchise's fourth-longest win streak. They can tie for the third longest when they go for 17 in a row Wednesday at Miami.
