Layups: The Big 3 in the Clutch

Posted by Neil Paine on March 17, 2009

Last week, Zach Lowe of Celtics Hub broke down the offensive performance of the C's Big 3 in the 4th quarter of close games. The findings? First, Paul Pierce is even more adept at attacking and drawing fouls than usual at the end of tight contests (no surprise to anyone who's watched the Celtics over the years). Second, Ray Allen relies far more heavily on the 3-pointer late in close games than in any other situation. Finally, for better or for worse, KG's game stays exactly the same in clutch situations -- he's disciplined and doesn't force things, even if the situation perhaps demands it.
