The Celtics are one game away from winning their 18th title in franchise history, and Payton Pritchard made sure to infuse the game with his signature style.

With time expiring before the first half expired in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Pritchard took a pass from Al Horford and launched a 43-foot shot from behind the half-court line to give Boston a 67- 46 vs. the Dallas Mavericks. .

Several NBA players gave the Celtics guard the flowers.

Pritchard entered the Game 5 for Derrick White with four seconds left in the second quarter and immediately made an impact with his only shot of the game.
