Monday, Monday. Can’t trust that day. It was almost a sweep for road teams, except for the Celtics, who finally ran out of gas in of all places, Charlotte.
One of the most exciting games of the season took three overtimes to decide. Paul Pierce played 54 of the 63 minutes, had a monster triple-double (27 PTS, 14 REB, 14 AST) and one of his five 3-pointers saved the game. Kevin Garnett (20 PTS, 18 REB, 6 AST, 2 STL, 3 BLK) played 47 minutes and Jason Terry also hit five triples among his 26 points.
