Clock Freezes During 4th Quarter Of Game 4
This didn’t end up being a big deal but it’s interesting nonetheless. With the game knotted at 86 during the final moments of the Celtics-Magic Game 4 and the C’s looking for a game-winner to sweep the series, the clock freezes at 8.5 seconds for what amounts to be about half a second before continuing to run. Unfortunately Paul Pierce turned the ball over forcing the first overtime in the 2010 NBA Playoffs and the Magic relied on a Jameer Nelson heat-check to get their first win of the series.
Had the C’s managed to get pull off the win in regulation it would have been a little more than just the luck of the Irish if you can dig.
