Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
He submitted a forgettable first half against the younger, quicker, more agile Thunder. But, when the third quarter started, the captain stamped his imprint on the game, ripping off seven straight points (a fallaway...
Paul Pierce is one smooth player. Jeff Green and Kris Joseph can learn a lot from him. Probably a big reason why Joseph was back at practice today.

This is just totally embarassing for Celtics' Paul Pierce and it came courtesy of Magic's Jameer Nelson.
Let's set it up:
The scene: Orlando, FL, Amway Center
The victim: Boston's Paul Pierce
The outcome: Pierce gets decimated by a hesitation move by Nelson which causes his ankle to get shattered along with his knee to buckle.
Though Boston and Pierce would...
Year after year, Paul Pierce has been a foundational rock for the Boston Celtics. Throughout his career, he has filled a myriad of roles and willed his team to wins in the clutch, but his game has evolved over time. Always a crafty player, "The Truth" has fine-tuned his post game, hesitation dribble, ball fakes, step-backs, and jump shot in order to stay competitive despite...
Also, I forgot to note, we could have traded Paul Pierce to the Clippers and maybe got some draft pics and prospects. I am just sayin!

Paul Pierce had a good game in their 116-110 overtime victory over the Magic Sunday night. But while Pierce poured in 23 points on the offensive end, all we want to talk about is how he almost lost a leg on the defensive end to a crossover dribble from Magic guard Jameer Nelson.
Gotta move those feet, Paul.

Surprised to see so much Big Baby hate. I've felt that the Celtics got the best of the deal but I though Baby was doing pretty well there. Guess not. A lot of ref complaints but I thought the refs missed stuff on both sides but didn't favor either. Of course, what would a CFTOS be without a Paul Pierce wheelchair reference? My favorite comments are in bold. ...
Paul Pierce has done this a million times. Early in games, late in games, in the middle, it does not matter when. Pierce knows exactly how to finish things off and how to brush off any failures. When he stepped into a wide-open 3-pointer with 2:10 left in overtime to break a 108-108 tie, it was old hat for him.
For the Magic, it is not quite second nature to win these close games...
Jameer Nelson pulled off one of the most simple non-crossovers I have seen in quite sometime, and it sent Paul Pierce tumbling to the ground. Check out how Pierce’s legs just buckled underneath him as Jameer created more than space. Paul was forced to pick up his jock-strap following the embarrassment.
And yes, Jameer missed the shot.

Paul Pierce scored 22 of his 27 points in the second half and the Boston Celtics snapped a two-game losing streak by beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-100 on Friday night.
Kevin Garnett had 18 points and nine rebounds for the Celtics, who led by as many as 14 in the second half and held on after the Thunder cut it to three points with under 2 minutes remaining. Rajon Rondo had...
Fantastic crossover by the one time all star point guard, Jameer Nelson. Unfortunately, you need to sink the basket or at least take the ball to the hole if you are going to leave your defender looking like he just had his leg chopped off by a zombie. Or a fat person falling and not getting up.
In related news, the Orlando Magic almost beat the Celtics in this game. That...
A lot of people aren't that high on Joseph, because he doesn't have the Sportcenter athleticism, but I like the kid and I think he has an NBA future. So far Jospeh has played well in Summer League, preseason, and now in the D-League. I like how he filled out the stat sheet yesterday (8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals, to go along with the 28 points). I would...
Every year I try to make it to the Garden as many times as I can to watch the Celtics play. Basketball, more so than any other sport in my opinion, is so much fun to watch in person. To be able to see first hand just how much bigger, stronger and faster these players are than us “normals” is the only way I think you can truly appreciate what happens night in and night out...
