Celtics 118, Knicks 116
Regular season (Dec. 15)
December regular-season games don't get better than this, complete with two confident teams on long winning streaks, terrific individual performances, tremendous late-game shot making and, of course, a little controversy. Paul Pierce hit a tiebreaking jumper with 0.4 seconds left to cap his 32-point night. Amar'e Stoudemire (39 points) then made a three-pointer but it was ruled to have come after the buzzer. Knicks fans thought New York should've had a few more tenths of a second on the clock for the last possession -- which means Stoudemire's basket might've counted.
