Pierce to the rescue

ORLANDO – Call it a Pierce rally.

With his team down 72-67, the Celtics [1] captain began a personal run, hitting a jumper at 6:00. Then another 30 seconds later and when he drained a long jumper from just inside the three-line at 4:48, the Celtics had recaptured the lead, 73-72. This time, it was his turn to fist pump the crowd, which he did.
