Best of Pierce: Pierce hits game winner over James in game 5 ECF's 2012

Pierce’s late long ball helps Celtics take 3-2 series lead

I really thought Pierce's big time three over Lebron James was the dagger of the series last year in the East Finals. The Celtics took a 3-2 lead into the Boston Garden. We know the pain of game 6. But for a moment we felt like everything was falling into place, but it wasn't meant to be.


“I kind of wanted him to drive, honestly,’’ Rivers said. “I’ve been around Paul long enough, right when he gets into the footwork, you knew he was going to shoot it. Honestly, I thought he was going to drive it, but he made it. That’s what players like Paul do. It really is. He’s a big shot-maker, he always has been.’’

I agree though that was a wrap on the series. Celtics were home in game 6 and I thought it was done.

I think most of us felt that way.

I thought that series was over especially with us coming home for game 6 and I still thought we would win game 7 I just didn't think the big 3 would lose another game 7 but they did.
