With a little more than a minute left to go it was a little early to celebrate, but when you're feeling it sometimes you just have to go with it--like Boston Celtic Paul Pierce did Tuesday in Game Two of their best of seven series with the Atlanta Hawks.

Perhaps it wasn't so much of a celebration, but a show of joy that when you come to together as a team you can overcome adversity (like losing Rajon Rondo for a game) and still play quality basketball. Pierce ended up leading the way (36 points, 14 rebounds) to a 87-80 win for the Celtics.

Or maybe he was just celebrating. Whatever the reason, it looked pretty darn cool.
