The seconds were ticking away and all of a sudden Paul Pierce was wide open beyond the 3-point line with a chance to tie the game in the final seconds.

Andre Iguodala was hopelessly behind Pierce, unable to get anywhere near him to alter his shot.

And then the whistle blew.

It turned out Pierce was open because Celtics center Kevin Garnett set an illegal screen on Iguodala, a pick Iguodala called as "blatant as anything I've ever seen." It seems like that's about the only way Pierce has been able to shake free of Iguodala.
