Found May 02, 2012 on Celtics Town:
PLAYERS: Paul Pierce
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Paul Pierce turned the ball over eight times, took his foot off the pedal for the middle two quarters, and still found the time to turn in an epic performance just when the Celtics needed one. All hail The Truth.(video via Red’s Army and @MrTrpleDouble10)

Paul Pierce with another vintage playoff performance

Many people predicted before last night that Paul Pierce would become more of a distributor in Rajon Rondo’s absence. Pierce often dishes more assists than usual when Rondo misses games, so it was natural to believe he would become a de facto point guard in Rondo’s absence. Pierce, however, maintained the stance he always takes when asked why he scored this, or passed that...

VIDEO: Paul Pierce Tebows In Game

The NBA playoffs are an absolute battlefield. When you are without your best teammate like Paul Pierce was on Tuesday night, you need all the motivation you can get. Like any great man, Pierce turned to something that we all do when we need some extra motivation in our lives; He turned to Tim Tebow. After knocking down some clutch free throws late in the fourth quarter to virtually...

Paul Pierce Tebowed Twice Last Night, Celtics Win (Video)

Can't say I knew Paul Pierce was a big Tim Tebow fan, but apparently he is.  He did the Tebow last night....Twice.  And whadaya know, the Celtics won the game behind Pierce and his 36 points and evened up the series 1-1 against the Atlanta Hawks.  And to add salt to the wound, Hawks star player Josh Smith suffered a knee injury during the game.  The magical power of the...

Paul Pierce Submits Performance for the Ages to Keep Celtics Out of Dire Situation Against Hawks

Some of the most memorable plays of Paul Pierce's career have come within a hair of sheer disaster. So many times, Pierce has appeared to be moments from losing the ball, getting his shot blocked or picking up his pivot foot before suddenly executing a move no coach in his right mind would ever have taught him. Yet so many times, it has worked. It only made sense then that one...

I think the title says it all…

Without Smith, Hawks can't do anything about Pierce

It's hard to tell what's worse: the face plant at home with a chance to take a commanding 2-0 lead over Boston in this first-round playoff series or losing your best player to a potential season-ending knee injury. The Hawks cashed in on both counts Tuesday night at Philips Arena, losing to the undermanned Boston Celtics 87-80 in Game 2 of their series. They watched Josh...

Comments from the other side - Hawks Game 2 5/1

Poor Hawks fans.  They were so sure they were going to end the evening celebrating up 2-0 and ended up 1-1 and drunk.  I think my favorite comment is this one:  "The refs have been the leaders of the Celtic glee club. Maybe they're confused and think the C's are Miami?"  Talk about grasping at straws.  Not sure how they have the nerve to say that after that...

Oh Captain, My Captain! Pierce’s 36 Ties Series 1-1

Joe Johnson had his hands full all night with Pierce, unable to match him on either side of the ball. Celtics fans knew it would take better performances from veterans Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett if the Celtics were to take Game 2 in Atlanta and steal home-court advantage from the Hawks, especially with Ray Allen still injured and Rajon Rondo suspended due to bumping an...

Starting 5: Nuggets get close, Philly takes advantage & Pierce goes off

Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day. 1:  The Nuggets get closer... but.... They're just not good enough to beat the Lakers.  The playoffs are all about matchups, and these are some tough matchups for the Nuggets.  All the double teaming of Bynum worked well enough in stretches, but he's still too big for...

Paul Pierce's Game 2 Heroics, Derrick Rose's Injury Could Key Celtics on Another Championship Run (Podcast)

After Paul Pierce's heroics in Game 2 of the Celtics-Hawks playoff series, the C's come home to Boston with the series tied at one game apiece and probably feeling pretty good about themselves. After the Truth's 36-point outburst to steal home court away from Atlanta, Boston will try to keep things rolling at the TD Garden with another key cog back in place. Rajon Rondo...

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 Shut Down Hawks In Fourth Win 87-80, Series Tied 1-1

Paul Pierce racked up a double-double as he knocked down a game high 36 points while the Boston Celtics displayed some of their strongest defense this year in the fourth quarter, as they took game two of their opening Playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks at Phillips Arena Tuesday night by a final score of 87-80. The victory for the Celtics takes away the home-court advantage...

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...
