Chauncey Billups Just Ripped Boston’s Heart Out

Great game in Boston tonight, probably the best game I’ve seen all season. The Celtics just went down to the Detroit Pistons 87-85 on two last-second free throws from Chauncey Billups.

With 1.7 seconds remaining, Billups pump faked Tony Allen right out of his shoes, leaned in, and let it fly. Whistle. 0.1 seconds left on the clock. Two makes for Chauncey. Game over.

Boston put up a really good fight, and showed that they can play through some adversity. Ray Allen hit some big shots, Kevin Garnett made some big plays, Rajon Rondo had a big night for someone of his calibre, and Paul Pierce…well, Pierce missed a fallaway jumper that would have put Boston up and kept Chauncey from winning the game with free throws.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to NBA Eastern Conference basketball. It’s been a while, but the East is fun to watch again.

  1. I’m not sure what it is about Boston but I love that they lost this game. They had double digit leads on a couple occasions and I was glad to see them lose this game. Even though I’m a HUGE fan of KG I still enjoy rooting against Boston this season.

  2. I missed the game. Looks like it’ll be between these two teams for the East. As the Patriots seemed to be poised to go the Super Bowl, and the Red Sox have won the World Series, what a time it must be for a Boston sports fan.
