The second round of the madness continues today and while the NBA is likely to lockout its players when the clock strikes midnight, there will be plenty of Cinderellas left in this tournament after that. Today we take a trip back to the playoffs against the Knicks as well as another look at one of Paul Pierce's dunks.
Seed #3: KG's Jump Hook vs NYK (ECQF Game 2) – Game 1 had already featured some amazing plays during a close game that the C's were able to win at the Garden. Game 2 did not disappoint in the drama department as the Celtics trailed the Knicks by one with under 20 seconds left. This time, there would be no alley-oop from Rajon Rondo, but KG would still be the go-to man. And this time, he does it with a strong, gritty, old-school back-down power move in the post that results in a jump hook that proved to be the game winner.
Seed #35 – Pierce Posterizes Roy Hibbert – It's St. Patrick's Day time around Boston and Pierce wastes no time introducing Danny Granger to a little baseline Irish Jig to get by him on his way to the basket. And much like the boys in Southie get it done right away as soon as they set foot in the bar, Pierce posterizes Roy Hibbert to score the first points of the game. Top 'O The Mornin to ya, Mr. Hibbert!
