After a long holiday weekend it's always difficult to return to work and get back to the grind, especially with the lockout still going on. What better way to ease back into it with another edition of the GreenLight Madness. Today's second round matchup features some passing by Paul Pierce that Larry Bird would be proud of, along with some 3-point bombs from Pierce and Ray Allen to tune out the Utah Jazz.
Seed #8: Pierce with the No-Look Pass to Krstic – With just under 5 minutes to play in the first quarter at Milwuakee, Pierce up-fakes John Salmons at the left 3-point wing and heads to the basket. Pulling a Bird, he spins a no-look over-the-shoulder-pass to Nenad Krstic for the reverse lay-up. Simply beautiful.
Seed #40: Ray and Pierce Bombs Tune out Jazz – It's the same game as Jeff Green's block (in late February) and the C's still maintain a one-point lead, but now things are truly crunch time. With just over three minutes to play, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce decide they've had enough and drop a handful of bombs to seal the win and complete a 3-1 post all-star game road trip.
