C's Made it Three in a Row

The Boston Celtics, seems like the championship team in the past, surge ahead of their own series with the Heat with a sounding victory 100-98. A stellar performance by Paul Pierce capped with a buzzer beating winning shot in regulation, lead the C's with 32 points. Ray Allen, who had 25 points in Game 2 had another 25 point-performance once again. Rajon Rondo added 17 points and 8 assists while Kevin Garnett, who was suspended in game 2, finished with 16 points. it was a closed game down the stretch with Paul Pierce hitting the go-ahead 3 pointer to make it a 98-95 ballgame. But Dorell Wright answered with his own 3-pointer that tied the game 98 all. Miami could have lead but a Dwyane Wade missed a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left, setting up for the heroics of Paul Pierce with a jumper at the buzzer. Wade lead the Heat with 34 points,while Michael Beasley had 16 points and Dorell Wright added 1 5 points. Wade suffered cramps late in the game after that 3 point attempt that could have give the Heat for good in the dying seconds.
