Paul Pierce received the ball with under a minute to go and some room to breathe in front of the 3-point line. The Celtics captain didn’t bother pump faking or even attempting to drive to the hoop, as he was as confident as ever that he could seal a colossal Game 5 win with one stroke.
Pierce sunk the clutch 3-pointer with :52 seconds to play in Tuesday night’s game and helped propel the C’s to a 94-90 victory over the Heat to take a 3-2 series lead heading back to Boston.
Rajon Rondo‘s miraculous play also had a huge role in the Celtics win, and the flashy point guard was quick to focus on the team victory over any nifty moves in the passing lane.
