The Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks are currently doing battle at the T.D. Garden. It’s been a competitive game and guard Jerryd Bayless is a big reason why.

Bayless is starting alongside former All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo and has already scored 19 points to lead the Celtics.

When you’re only averaging 8.2 points per game on the season like Bayless is during the 2013-14 season, you need a little luck on your side to have a big game. Bayless clearly got that against the Hawks Wednesday. During the third quarter, the Celtics brought the ball up and tried to get it into the post. The Celtics did indeed do that and then noticed a wide-open Bayless, who banked in a corner three.

The best part was the Celtics running back down the court as Bayless shot like they knew the shot was going to bank in.
