Pierce: 'Gratifying' to see LeBron foul out

Cameras caught Paul Pierce breaking into a wide smile with 1:51 left in overtime as LeBron James was called for his sixth and final foul, getting disqualified for just the fourth time in his career, and the first time since April 2008. 

It was also the first time in James' career that he fouled out in the playoffs. Paul Pierce, on the other hand, fouled out for the third time in his last five playoff games dating back to Game 7 against Philadelphia. Pierce was called for his sixth just 38 seconds into overtime when he was called for running over Shane Battier on a cut across the lane. 

"Oh, it was very frustrating," Pierce said. "But it's gratifying when you see the other star player fouling out, also." 

Pierce later added, "It was a cut, scratch, grab, hold, elbow-type of game. I mean, nobody was going to give an edge. I'd say it's a classic. You rarely see that, you rarely see that. You rarely see...

Doc: 'Red wasn't going to let that go in'

Dwyane Wade had a good look at a 3-pointer that could have won Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals in overtime, but long after it bounced out, Celtics coach Doc Rivers had a simple explanation.

"Red wasn't going to let that go in, you know that," he said. "Not in the Boston Garden. I thought it looked good when it left his hand. We told them to watch the pump fake. What Marquis [Daniels] did was on the pump fake he jumped out of the way so he couldn't draw the foul."

Said Daniels: "He pump faked twice. At some point I knew he was going to get it up, I was just like, man. When he did get it up it seemed like forever."

LeBron: 'I don't foul out'

Going into Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals, LeBron James had played 795 career games in the NBA. He had fouled out in just three of those contests, all of which were in the regular season, and the last time dating back to April 2, 2008. After the Celtics won Game 4 in overtime, James expressed his displeasure with the officiating and fouling out.

“I know how to play the game of basketball,” James said. “I don't need the advantage of holding somebody or pushing somebody down.”

James particularly was upset about the off-the-ball fouls called on him. He said he didn't think he should have been called for the offensive foul Mickael Pietrus drew in overtime that made him a spectator the rest of the night.

“I don't foul out,” he continued. “If I'm going to foul out [on] that sixth foul, I wish I earned it.”

Thriller: Celtics tie series with OT win

Rajon Rondo had the go-ahead shot with just over two minutes left in overtime and Mickael Pietrus played stifling defense and had a pair of key offensive rebounds in the final 90 seconds as the Celtics survived the Heat, 93-91, in a heart-stopping Game 4 Sunday night at TD Garden. Dwyane Wade missed an open look at a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would've won the game for Miami. 

Rondo had 15 points and 15 assists while Kevin Garnett added 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Celtics, who head back to Miami tied, 2-2, in the Eastern Conference finals. LeBron James had 29 points before fouling out with under two minutes left in overtiime and Wade added 20 for the Heat, who couldn't complete their comeback. 

The Celtics went for the kill early in Game 4, racing out to a 21-6 lead. Paul Pierce led the way in the first quarter, hitting 2-of-3 from long range and finishing the quarter with 12 points. The Celtics made 13-of-22 (59 percent) from the...

Anthony gets start for Heat over Turiaf

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra made a late change to his starting lineup, moving Joel Anthony into the center spot ahead of Ronny Turiaf. That lineup has played 80 minutes together in the playoffs, outscoring its opponents by 35 points.

Anthony also has played Kevin Garnett well during the series. In Anthony's 32 minutes, Garnett is shooting 40 percent. In the 78 with Anthony on the bench, Garnett is averaging 24.5 points per 36 minutes and shooting 53 percent.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers mentioned that the Heat made a number of defensive adjustments in the fourth quarter, including trapping Rajon Rondo.

"They did so many things in the fourth quarter and more of it was because they were down," Rivers said. "From our standpoint, you have to think: Is that what they’re going to do now? You just try to prepare for change, but you never should make a change first before they make a change."

Rivers also said that he and...
