Had Paul Pierce been all by his lonesome when he took the shot that buried the Miami Heat last night at American Airlines Arena, it still would have gone into the books as one of those Great Celtics Moments.
But as the announcer says on those late-night television commercials for steak knives and household cleansers: Wait! There's more!
For Pierce was decidedly not all by his lonesome when he connected on that 25-foot 3-pointer with 52.9 seconds remaining to give the Celtics a four-point lead in what would be a 94-90 victory against the Heat. No, that was Heat superstar LeBron James in the picture with Paul Pierce, and do we need to remind you that this was Game 5?
