Celtics Vs. Heat, Game 5: Paul Pierce Hits 3-Pointer Over LeBron James, Give Boston 4-Point Lead Late

Paul Pierce hit a 3-pointer over LeBron James to give the Boston Celtics a four-point lead, 90-86, with just 52 seconds to play in the fourth quarter of Game 5 of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals. The shot could ultimately prove to be a dagger for the Miami Heat.

Pierce has been spotty all night, but if the Celtics pull out the win it will be hard to argue against that shot being the play of Tuesday night's game.
