Found May 02, 2012 on CLNS Radio:
Paul Pierce is the captain of the Boston Celtics. He has gone from a Celtic that drifted from season to season, never accomplishing much. Today, he can let his record speak for itself, an NBA champion and Finals MVP. Pierce surpassed Larry Bird to move into number 2 on the Celtics all-time scoring list. He [...]

Paul Pierce “Tebows” on the Hawks logo after the Celtics win

I know a lot of people have mixed feelings about Paul Pierce. Even though he plays for the Celtics, I have an affinity for him. Maybe it’s that he’s from INGLEWOOD. Whatever it is, I respect his confidence on the court. I love that he delivers and then pops sh*t. Tonight following a Celtics win [...]

I think the title says it all…

You Can’t Handle The Truth

Paul Pierce willed the Celtics to victory over the Hawks on Tuesday night, dropping 36 points and 14 rebounds in a must-win situation. He absolutely took over in the fourth quarter. What do they say? Big players make big plays in big games? Well Pierce did that again, and he’s earned this montage with a little Eminem dubbed over it.

Paul Pierce Befuddles Coaches, Opponents With Sneaky Skills as Celtics Hope for Another Huge Performance

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Doc Rivers knows what Hawks coach Larry Drew is going through. After Paul Pierce exploded for 36 points and 14 rebounds in 44 grueling minutes in Game 2, Rivers had a good idea of how he would have reacted in his early days coaching against the Celtics. Rivers always seemed to be at a loss for how the stumbling, herky-jerky forward could take over games despite...

Paul's 36 lead Rondo-less Celts

Paul Pierce battled through another tough shooting night to score 36 points, and the Boston Celtics wiped out Atlanta's 11-point lead in the second half even without Rajon Rondo -- stunning the Hawks 87-80 Tuesday night in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Celtics Live Blog: Paul Pierce, C's Return Home Hoping to Take Series Lead Over Hawks in Game 3

8 a.m.: Rajon Rondo will be back in uniform, looking to dish the Celtics into the lead in their best-of-seven first-round series. Rondo returns to the team after serving a one-game suspension in Game 2, when Paul Pierce went off for 36 points to even the Eastern Conference playoff series against the Hawks at 1-1. Ray Allen is still no more than a game-time decision, and the Hawks...

Celtics 87, Hawks 80

ATLANTA -- On a night where he knew he would have to come up big, Paul Pierce poured in 36 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to power the Boston Celtics to an 87-80 victory over the Atlanta Hawks Tuesday night. Despite being without guard Rajon Rondo, who was suspended for one game for bumping an official in Game 1, and Ray Allen, out with an ankle injury, the Celtics were able to...

Bass floundering under spotlight of playoffs

Brandon Bass should be sending thank you cards to Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce for stealing the spotlight after the first two games of their playoff series, and in turn taking the heat off of himself. The reality is that since the playoffs began (and even late in the regular season) Bass has seemed like....well a fish out of water.  Should this be much of a surprise? History would...

Celtics clamp down late, take Game 2 87-80

No Rajon Rondo? No Ray Allen? Eh, whatever. Paul Pierce turned into the 2002 version of Paul Pierce and carried the Celtics offensively. 36 points, 14 rebounds and one massive, backbreaking shot after another down the stretch more than made up for the Celtics' firepower that was relegated to viewership status. Calling his performance a thing of beauty would be an insult...

Who Is the Most Indispensable Member of the Boston Celtics?
