Celtics beat Lakers 112-111
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.
