Celtics’ Gerald Wallace with game-winning layup in OT (VIDEO)

Jan 23, 2014, 4:55 AM EDT

With the game tied 111-111 and 10 seconds left in overtime, we didn’t really expect Boston’s Gerald Wallace to be the guy bringing the ball up the court. And when he did, we expected he would start to drive and pass it off. If not, he would settle for a pull-up jumper.

But Wallace kept going, all the way to the rim and hit the layup that gave Boston a 113-111 win over the Wizards in Washington. It was an impressive, improbable shot.

But that wasn’t even the best shot of the night for Boston — they don’t even get to overtime unless Jeff Green sinks this one.

    Gerald , you should know that the Celts are suppose to lose, for the future of the franchise. You will now be banished to a contender before the trade deadline.

      Celtics would if they could but I like the joke.

    Brad Stevens drew up that play. It wasn’t improvised. It was brilliant.

      The Wallace play, I mean, not the Green one.

      I believe it. Seems like a strategy devised by Sun Tzu.
