Gutsiest shot: Pierce vs. Nuggets
A triple-overtime win over the Nuggets on Feb. 10 was one of the highlights of the first half and will go down as one of the signature regular season games in the Pierce-Garnett era. With the Celtics down three points with 5.2 seconds remaining in the second overtime, Pierce stepped back and drained a 24-footer over Andre Miller. It was classic Pierce, confidently making a shot he had no business making. The shot tied the game and sent it into a third overtime, where the Celtics prevailed, 118-114.
