That's our boy P-dub doing his clutch thing early… nailing a jumper with 8 seconds left in the game. The C's ended up winning this 104-101. Pierce dropped 20 points, 9 rebounds and 5 dimes in this one. After the game, he joked that he needed to hit the shot because he had an 11 o'clock reservation he needed to make for his birthday.
Pierce was in the game because the C's were down bigs… with Shaq in street clothes, Baby resting an sore knee, and Kevin Garnett tossed in the second quarter thanks to the NBA's completely asinine new tech rules.
Tommy damn near had a stroke. I'm sure the NBA loves that star players are getting bounced in the second quarter. That's what fans came to see.
- Ray dropped 24, 5 and 2.
- KG was 3-5 in his 11 minutes and he had his jumper working early
- Luke Harangody had himself a game: 16 points, 12 boards.
- Von Wafer has got to be done after this game. 2:13 of playing time… he missed his only shot. He's just not cutting it. Whatever it is… it's not working. And Mario West didn't play at all. So it's really looking like Stephane Lasme is the guy.
