Celtics Minute after the jump.
BEST OF MAXIM
If my calculations are correct, Pierce averaged 25.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals this week, while being overlooked by fans in favor of heaping praise on Kevin Garnett and/or Rajon Rondo approximately 15,398,387 times. (Note: Don’t take that as an insult to KG or Rondo. Both deserve all the praise they’ve gotten, just like Pierce deserves a lot more praise...
Paul Pierce has won many game for the Boston Celtics in a situation similar to last night’s, isolated against single coverage at the top of the key with the clock winding down. Against the Spurs last night, he even had an extra advantage: Tim Duncan, San Antonio’s 35-year old center, had switched onto Pierce and the mismatch should have made Pierce’s challenge simpler. Many...
BOSTON -- Paul Pierce and Doc Rivers could not say it without sounding a little ridiculous, so we'll say it for them. (After all, ridiculous is one of the specialties around here.) Pierce got a perfect shot on the final play against the Spurs. In the wake of the Celtics' 87-86 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday, after Pierce's final shot rimmed out and ended Boston's...
Paul Pierce rivaled Lebron James with a stellar all-around performance against the Heat on Sunday. And the Celtics captain is being properly recognized for his outstanding play of late. On Monday, Pierce was named as the NBA's Eastern Conference Player of the Week. This is the second time that Pierce has won the award this season, also taking home the honors during the first...
Avery Bradley spoke to CLNS Locker Room Reporter Jared Weiss about shutting down Dwyane Wade and Manu Ginobili in consecutive games. Paul Pierce remained confident after missing the game-winner Wednesday night. Despite another strong performance continuing his double-digit assist streak, Rondo was cryptic as usual. Kevin Garnett matched up against the other old great big [...]
Paul Pierce was more than ready for the college basketball championship tipoff Monday night. He tweeted a photo of himself decked out in his Kansas threads, calling on Kentucky alumnus Rajon Rondo to do the same with a Wildcats jersey. “I’m ready,” Pierce said in his tweet, where he was wearing the familiar No. 34.

Whether Paul Pierce will turn out to be the hero of the game, this satiric profile will show.
Paul Pierce admits the game is not scripted.
After throwing up a clanker with seconds left in a chance to beat the San Antonio Spurs, Celtic Paul Pierce revealed during a post-game interview that Hollywood scripts and storybook endings to the Celtics home game never made...
BOSTON –- Paul Pierce decorated his locker with three University of Kansas hats and a T-shirt Sunday, showing off his school pride in advance of the Jayhawks' showdown with Kentucky in the NCAA men's basketball championship on Monday night. After the game, Pierce confidently predicted his alma mater would win. "He has to say that," said teammate Rajon Rondo, a...
It's not often that an NBA player gets duped by a playground move but check out this clip from yesterday's Heat/Celtics affair as Paul Pierce ends up giving Heat forward Shane Battier an easy basket.The play happened midway through the second quarter during a Miami in-bounds play as Pierce had his back turned and Shane saw the opportunity to bounce it off his back for an easy hoop:
Forget for a second the loss, which could have been a win if Paul Pierce’s buzzer beater had been just a few inches different.Tonight’s Celtics performance demonstrated everything that makes the Celtics tough to beat and everything that will hold them back. They had offensive droughts. Occasionally made turnovers that left me shaking my head. Couldn’t rebound for ****, including...
Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce exchanging pics on twitter in preparation for the NCAA Championship game between Kansas and Kentucky. How much money do you think they bet each other on this?
According to Bill Simmons, the Boston Celtics nearly traded Paul Pierce to the New Jersey Nets at the trade deadline for a package similar to the one the Nets ultimately shipped to the Portland Trail Blazers for Gerald Wallace. Clearly, whatever trades did not happen at the trade deadline don’t matter much in reality. But in an alternate universe somewhere, the Celtics have Mehmet...
Shane Battier has always been known for his basketball IQ and selfless play. On Sunday against the Celtics he pulled off an inbounds play that we don't see very often, tossing the ball off of the back of Paul Pierce.
After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value.
Rajon Rondo: 17 points, 11 assists and 4 steals. No one else in this game got more than 5 assists. My knock on Rondo last night, though, was the jumper he took with the Spurs up 1 with 5:09 left. He seemed to get too caught up in the moment....
