Captain Clutch Strikes Again

You know that old saying: “Act like you’ve been there before?”  Well Paul Pierce is without question “The Truth” when it comes to clutch shots.  Here’s a quick rundown of all his buzzer beaters:

  • December 10, 2000 vs. Denver Nuggets
  • November 27, 2001 @ Miami Heat
  • November 10, 2004 vs. Portland TrailBlazers
  • November 25, 2005 vs. Charlotte Bobcats
  • March 7th, 2006 @ Washington Wizards
  • December 9th, 2006 @ New Jersey Nets
  • November 12th, 2008 vs. Atlanta Hawks

Perhaps his biggest buzzer beater was executed last night as Pierce once again delivered a huge victory for the Celtics, putting them up 3-0 in their first round series with the Miami Heat.  It’s the first time that Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen have ever led any series three games to none.

Watch as Pierce goes all Colonel Jessup on Dorell Wright and Miami:

Here are Pierce’s other clutch shots to win a game:


It’s too bad that Dwyane Wade got those nasty calf cramps late in the game.  Maybe he should have followed his own advice and actually use a product he endorses: Gatorade (see video below).  Then again, his best option would be to use his MyTouch from T-Mobile and download some new teammates (hello Jermaine O’Neal, shooting 5 for 31 through 3 games).  Is there an app for that?

    I’ll never forget his buzzer beater versus the Wizards, that was one hell of a shot in its own right, and to make it to win the game at the buzzer is just unbelievable.

  • Nice, loved it!
    but… sorry to say, but faker fans can make such a clip about kobe’s buzzer-beaters… from this season only. doesn’t make them a better team anyway. exactly opposite.

  • I love that eddies son still gets to sit on the bench like he’s part of the team even though eddies with the knicks now, nice gesture by the c’s
    ………………oh wait, nevermind thats just nate robinson
    its hilarious watching him having to look two feet up at everybody in the celebration huddle

    Hey Dub10! Any chance u can get the 4th quarter blow out game up? TNT screwed us out of seeing it in it’s entirety. The whole games could be to ambitious but 4th quarters of local feeds would be appreciated. Thanx

  • Shawn-
    Funny you should ask. I have all 3 games so far, near completed. Every playoff game (including Q4 of Game 2) will be uploaded to youtube relatively soon.

  • Shawn-cvd

    You the man! Will I see it under your you tube profile or will you post a link here?

  • If you have subscribed to my youtube page, you’ll see it as soon as it’s uploaded (12 parts plus the Intro and Outro) all in HD, widescreen. I will most likely post it here as well.
    I should have every playoff game uploaded at some point. I just figured I’d start with Game 2 since I’ve seen/heard several C’s fans rightfully complain about TNT cutting out Q4.
