Yeah no doubt about it the Celtics needed extra periods to mightily outlasted Dallas Mavericks and take away. Doctor James -- Smith.

The execution for both teams a lot left to be desired let's start with the Celtics end of regulation they had a chance to win this thing that -- on Rondo. Had his shot blocked by it. Thousand year old Derek Fisher it dead into overtime Paul -- to cap it. Another jump shot that was blocked by Dahntay Jones but finally and his second overtime the Celtics get something going to the basket.

And overtime all -- to -- that seems like they were settling for jump shots late inning game with two things happen on that for want. Rondo had to go full court I would like to see the court a bit more spread for him just to attack. 1000 year old Derek Fisher beat around here right and the second one Paul Pierce got the ball late in the clock are. There were six point nine to go. He got it would three point eight I would've loved to see him get the ball with six point nine -- let him so high that Dahntay Jones who we just knockdown shot over and boom.
