The last two games for the Celtics have been wild. They have played little to no defense but have hung in each game until the end. The loss to the Bucks last night was a tough one to stomach because it ended on an Avery Bradley foul with under a second left to go. However, the Celtics redeemed themselves tonight with a quality win over the Clippers in what may have been Paul Pierce's last game at the TD Garden.
The game was back and forth all night but the Celtics finally pulled away in overtime, leading them to a 139-134 victory. Isaiah Thomas and Chris Paul both played exceptionally well in probably the most entertaining Celtics game of the year. The buzzer beater by Bradley in Cleveland was definitely the most exciting finish to a Celtics game this season, but this game was the most entertaining throughout. Don't believe me? Brad Stevens, Mr. Cool himself even lost his mind during the game due to the referees being horrendous like usual.
