Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce blew a kiss to New York Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden after hitting a 21-footer to seal the win for the Celtics.
The basket by Pierce gave the Celtics a 6 point lead with 45 seconds left and put the game out of reach. Pierce led the Celtics in scoring during Monday night's 102-96 victory over the Knicks.
Pierce's playful taunting, combined with Kevin Garnett's trash talk (that really got under Carmelo Anthony's skin), just made the Knicks-Celtics rivalry a lot more interesting.
