The Celtics went up 3-0 with a 100-98 win over the Heat. Here is Pierce’s game-winner:
Pierce always wants to get to the same spot — about 20-feet out to the right of the top of the key. The defender needs to force him left and make him uncomfortable. By having his left leg back, the defender invited Pierce to go right, and that played right into his hands.
It looks like Miami is done.
