In many ways Paul Pierce had a throwback season this past year, creating a hit list of posterizations on several players. His commitment to his fitness and diet has paid off as he gets older, and like Ray Allen they both seem to age like fine wine. Today's matchup features two great plays by The Truth.
Seed #8: Pierce with the No-Look Pass to Krstic – With just under 5 minutes to play in the first quarter at Milwuakee, Pierce up-fakes John Salmons at the left 3-point wing and heads to the basket. Pulling a Bird, he spins a no-look over-the-shoulder-pass to Nenad Krstic for the reverse lay-up. Simply beautiful.
Seed #41: Pierce Posterizes Kris Humphries – A stunning theme spread out throughout the season were Pierce's nasty dunks. This one against New Jersey's Kris Humphries certainly ranks right up there. Pierce is driving up the right side of the court and first goes around the back with the dribble to get past the folding chair defense of Sasha Vujacic, then blasts a one-handed slam over Humphries.
