The Boston Celtics beat the Washington Wizards 116-115. Pierce hit an amazing off balance shot with two defenders on him to win it for the Celtics. Ryan Gomes cashed in 27 points and 12 boards in 39 minutes. Gomes has really come on and can do everything on the court. Paul Pierce led the way with 31 points and 5 boards in 43 minutes. Pierce is the leader of the Celts for now and he has to use his time wisely before Danny Ainge makes a move. Wally Szczerbiak got 23 points and 5 boards in 42 minutes. Szczerbiak has blended better with Pierce and the Celts are looking better as a team. Antawn Jamison got 25 points and pulled down 12 boards in 47 minutes. Jamison had his normal 20 and 10 but I think the Wizards should let him handle the ball and show his passing skills. Gilbert Arenas had 39 points and 5 assists in 51 minutes. Arenas powered the 39 but has to get more than 5 assists. Caron Butler had 23 points and 4 assists in 46 minutes. Butler is getting into the Wizards system better and he has to be one of the big three.
