Paul Pierce took responsibility for the final play of regulation that resulted in no shot for the Celtics and allowed the Magic to survive to overtime, where they outlasted the Celtics for a 96-92 win in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.
With the game tied, 86-86, Pierce had the ball in his hands and was supposed to run a play that called for a pick and roll with Ray Allen but Pierce never got the ball to Allen and Jameer Nelson knocked it away and as time expired.
