Video: Paul Pierce hits three to send it to overtime

Mar 4, 2012, 10:03 PM EST

Rajon Rondo‘s triple-double is the big story line, but the Celtics still would not have beaten the Knicks without 34 from Paul Pierce, including this awkward three to send the game to overtime.

This is why the Celtics, even though they likely will not have home court in the first round of the playoffs, is the team everyone else wants to avoid. They have good veterans who know how to make plays under pressure. They defend hard. They may not be contenders but they will be a tough out in the playoffs.

    I heard LeBron watched this video and shook his head in disgust because Pierce didn’t pass the ball to one of his open team mates.

    Pierce’s shots always rattle it in the Garden.
    That guy has the softest touch on his jumpers ever lol. A leaning, awkward long 3 pt shot, and it clearly hits back rim, yet goes in. How does that happen?
