ANIMATED: Brandon Bass, Paul Pierce, Mickael Pietrus Whiff Rebound

Paul Pierce, Brandon Bass and Mickael Pietrus all went up for the same ball, and somehow it wound up in the hands of Tracy McGrady who promptly slammed through the easy dunk. Pierce's "whatever man" reaction afterwards would be hilarious if the game were going any better for the Celtics.
