A Paul Pierce (31 pts, 12-14 FG) jumper with 20 seconds left proved to be the game winner as the Celtics squeaked past the Nets, 115-111.
Credit to Ray Allen for nailing a huge 3 with 1 minute left to tie the game at 111. This jumper came on the same play in which Ray hit the game winner against Philly.
The Celtics offense collapsed midway through the 4th allowing New Jersey to climb out of an 11 point hole. The reason was simple: they stopped running.
We also saw the return of Beastondo. Perkins (17 pts, 13 reb) and Rondo (20 pts, 5 assists, 5 reb) both had great games.
My favorite line of the night – Bill Walker’s 7 min, 2 pts, 2 reb, 0 TO. This kept Pierce from playing 40+ minutes. Way to go Doc!!!
