The Celtics as we know them truly arrived on a June 13, 2008 in Los Angeles. It was Game 4 of the NBA Finals, and the Lakers were leading by 20 points in the third quarter. The Celtics had a 2-1 lead in the series, but it sure looked like the Lakers were coming back to tie it. The comeback thwarted all of that. Pierce scored nine points in the third quarter, and Eddie House gave the Celtics their first lead with 4:07 to play. The Celtics were all the way back, and all that was left to do was to ceremoniously finish off the Lakers, which Allen did by crossing over Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic and taking it all the way the basket to put the Celtics up for good. The Celtics won the game, 97-91.
