Captain Clutch

In helping the Celtics defeat the tough and talented Nuggets, 118-114 in triple OT last night, The Truth netted his ninth career triple-double with 27 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists.  But it was Truth's clutch three here with 5.2 seconds left in the second OT which not only forced the third OT but also pumped up the then-very weary C's through the final five minutes and onto victory.  This - just a few days after hitting some big shots against the Lakers too.  The Truth can still very much hurt opponents.

Sidebar: image above looks very similar to this shot taken from last May in the ECF when Pierce nailed this dagger over LeBron which put the C's up, 3-2, in the series.
