Some Celtics getting nods on the all-time buzzer beater list (very specific definition; has to win the game, has to leave no time on the clock).

This was a really fun article - turns out Pierce has the all-time record for combined buzzer beaters made+assisted (Jordan unsurprisingly leads on just shots).

From about half-court off a stolen inbounds if I remember right.

Anybody remember the legend of Sundiata Gaines?

I'll never forget that, it was like divine intervention that caused me to catch that live.

Home from college for Christmas break, flipping through the channel's at about 9:30pm looking for something to watch.  See the Celtics are down 2, with <2 seconds left and don't even have the ball, and the ball isn't even on their half of the court, obviously game over right, why waste my time watching at best a couple of drawn out free throws?  I want to keep flipping the channels, but something inside tells me "just watch it, you never know when a miracle shot might happen."


After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class
