Paul Pierce Drills Clutch 3-Pointer Over LeBron James [VIDEO]
Paul Pierce hit a cold-blooded 3 in LeBron's face to give the Boston Celtics a 94-90 win over the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. I'm not sure if Miami was cheered or heckled following the loss.
Paul Pierce hit a clutch 3-pointer in the face of LeBron James during the final minute of Game 5. The huge basket by Pierce gave the Boston Celtics a 90-86 lead with 52.9 seconds to play against the Miami Heat. The Celtics finished off the Heat by winning 94-90. The Celtics now have a 3-2 lead in the series. Boston will look to close out Miami at home in Game 6 on Thursday night.
Following the game, the Miami Heat were mocked and/or encouraged (I'm not sure which) by a young fan (video below). The boy kept saying, "Good job. Good effort." He kept saying this over and over again to the point that is sounded like he was almost mocking Miami. I'm not sure if his comments were genuine or not, but I am sure that Miami is backed up against a wall. It'll be interesting to see how the Heat respond in Game 6 on Thursday. Don't forget that the NBA Finals will be on 104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio beginning Tuesday, June 12th.
