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 week of February. Pierce has been dominant over the past three games for the Celtics. To kick off the week, Pierce poured in a season-high 36 points to go along with 10 rebounds in the C's...

Paul Pierce named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

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...

Kansas-Kentucky Championship Game Has Paul Pierce Representing

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.

Shane Battier bounces ball off Paul Pierce's back for basket (Video)

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:

James returns to form with 41 points vs. Sixers

MIAMI -- If Tom Brady goes awhile without a 300-yard passing game, it's a slump. If Tim Lincecum has a stretch without a 10-strikeout game, one wonders what's wrong. It's the same with Miami forward LeBron James. When he had failed to reach 30 points for nine straight games, his longest such streak since early in his second season of 2004-05, it was a drought. Well...

Will The Miami Heats Inability to Win On Road Cost Them In The Play-offs?

The Miami Heat have a good season going, just think how good it could be if these guys could win on the road. The Miami Heat have lost 7 out of their last 10 games on the road. Not only are they losing games on the road they lose them by plenty. For a team of fairly young players to lose to the Boston Celtics by 19 points and look totally worn out after the game, it leaves one to...

Are these Heat really any different?

MIAMI It's simple. Either the Miami Heat are the Heat 2.0 hardened, emboldened and made better by all that's transpired since LeBron James uttered those words about South Beach. Or they're the same team that relentlessly showed signs all last season, to those willing to see, that their glorious trio came with a very real Achilles' heel the one that finally caught...

Heat hope a return home fixes what ails them

When Monday's film session and court work were completed on the Heat practice floor, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade huddled with coach Erik Spoelstra and assistant David Fizdale for a chat. Everyone took a turn talking, everyone took a turn nodding. ''We'd be lying to ourselves,'' Wade said afterward, ''if we said we were playing our best basketball...

Fire Breathing Babes Getting You Ready For The Big Heat Game Tonight

The big game tonight will most likely decide who will be this year's MVP. I hope everyone is as excited as I am to see the Kevin Durant v.s. LeBron James showdown!! I'm taking Miami -2.5  

LeBron James Is Confused, Confusing, May Love Jerry Lynn

This strikes me as a pretty appropriate With Leather story to come out of WrestleMania weekend. Sweaterpunch alerts us to the fact that LeBron James and Dwyane Wade met up with Rey Mysterio over the weekend. Ignoring for a moment the completely stilted and uncomfortable exchange between the three men, the visual hilarity of Rey Rey getting a picture taken with these two massive...

Could the Miami Heat shake up their lineup?

Centers are at such a dearth in talent right now in today’s NBA that the Miami Heat would be just fine in a series against the Orlando Magic or Los Angeles Lakers. The Heat have enough talent in enough places to succeed against an elite center. Last season’s Eastern Conference Finals proved that the regular season is only good for seeding, and that in critical junctures...

Celtics Live Blog: Kevin Garnett, C's Open Grueling Stretch of Schedule By Hosting Miami Heat

8 a.m.: LeBron James and the Miami Heat visit the TD Garden on Sunday in what could be a first-round playoff preview. The Heat (37-13) hold the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and as recently as three days ago were slated to meet the Celtics (29-22) in the opening round. The Celtics' move into the Atlantic Division lead changed that, and their success down the stretch will...

The Greatest Tire Cover In The World

When I got back from Las Vegas early this morning, I had quite a few emails from readers tipping me off about the greatest sign in the history of sports fanfare at a recent Boston Bruins game. The only problem was that the sign was a photoshop from the folks at Masshole Sports and the real sign was much tamer. And as for the photoshops, I actually like this one a lot more. Thankfully...
