Celtics beat Lakers 112-111

After a hard game, the Celtics conclude a successful 3-and-1 road trip with a 112-to-111 victory over Los Angeles Lakers.

The records will say that Paul Pierce completed one of the best months of his career, scoring 39 points, including the deciding foul shot with 3-point-two seconds remaining.

Indeed, Pierce was fouled by Kobe Bryant, and made one foul shot to complete the scoring. He averaged 33-point-5 points in eleven games this month.

We must notice that Bryant—who scored 40 points but was held to three in the final period—missed as time expired.

Ryan Gomes added a career-high 19 points and 12 rebounds for Boston, and Delonte West had 19 points and a career-best ten assists. Wally Szczerbiak added 16 points. Brian Cook scored 19 for the Lakers.
