Games this week:

  • @ Cleveland:     18 pts (6/14 fg, 3/5 3pt), 3 reb, 4 asst,
  • vs. Detroit:        15 pts (4/6 fg, 1/3 3pt), 1 reb, 3 asst, 2 stl
  • vs. New York:    29 pts (11/17 fg, 3/6 3pt), 6 reb, 0 asst, 1 stl
  • @ Houston:       26 pts (9/14 fg, 2/3 3pt), 5 reb, 1 asst, 2 stl
  • @ Dallas:         29 pts (10/17 fg, 1/5 3pt), 3 reb, 5 asst, 2 stl

The first thing I notice here is… that's 5 games in one week.  And look at how much stronger Paul finished this week.  Very impressive.

Also very impressive is when The Truth has been doing a lot of his scoring.  Just look at the past two games.  The dagger three last night with 1:44 left on the clock.  The 4th quarter take-over against Houston.  He's getting back to being "The Truth"… to taking over when needed… to nailing the big shots that squelch runs.

The fact of the matter is that entire Big 3 has played very well this week.  But Pierce has done it just a little better.

    Pierce has been the man. Quis get’s Troth some much needed rest and look what PP can do for us. His efficiencey is off the charts. Most players need ten more shots to get 29 points. Truth knows our offensive rebounding is suspect so he makes those shots count.
    And check out the “old” Celtics playing 5 games in one week and going on this tear? I’m tired of nay sayers complaining that other teams don’t fear the C’s. Let them not be afraid as Gang Green continue to rack up the W’s. Utah your next and will be the sixth game in nine days. Lets DO this!!!

    Didn’t everyone say this guy was done last month?? I heard it on heard on the 2 Man game that he is no longer a go to guy, I told u guys to chill out didn’t I? This guy has always been all heart and balls. He plays with every injury u can think of. Sometimes the production won’t be there when he is in a lot of pain. Pierce is still the man. Green 18, never doubt the Truth..Greastest Celtic ever! WHOOOO
