Doc Rivers and Paul Pierce discuss the Celtics' Game 4 win over the Heat.

"Red [Auerbach] wasn't going to let that go in, you know that. Not in the Boston Garden," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said of Dwyane Wade's would-be game winner at the end of overtime.

But then he added, "I thought it looked good, honestly."

Meanwhile, Paul Pierce said the game had the makings of "an instant classic."

"Words can't even describe what kind of game it [was]," said Pierce. "It's a funny game, you know, the way the ball bounces, the way things go. ... I'm just glad I was on the winning side today."
