“We knew this was probably going to be the toughest game for us physically and mentally. Talking about a long road trip, coming in to one of the toughest places to play. We felt we could salvage this trip with a win here. So guys did a good job of just being mentally tough, digging in and doing what we had to do to get the win.” – Paul Pierce
Probably 90% of us found out Rajon Rondo suffered an ACL tear from ESPN’s Doris Burke, who provided updates on the situation throughout the Heat vs Celtics game. As it turns out, his teammate Paul Pierce was also among the 90% that found out from Burke — on national TV about the unfortunate news. Yes, it was awkward and yes it deserved The Gas Face.
This Rondo–esque dime Paul Pierce no looked to Kevin Garnett in the lane was so sweet. KG is probably still dropping f-bombs about it’s beauty as we speak.
In super slow motion, you can almost see the ice water running through the veins of Paul Pierce as he knocks down the cold-blooded 3 pointer to seal game 5 for the Celtics in Miami. If the C’s win tonight, expect to see this highlight 1000 times more.
With no regard for the legacy or face of LeBron James. Paul Pierce nails this clutch three pointer with the MVP in his grill to give the Celtics a four point lead and all the momentum in the world to win Game 5. Yes my friends, sometimes the Dagger of Truth looms even more ominous than the sword of Damocles.
The truth of the matter is that Paul Pierce can still get up when he needs to, just ask Shane Battier. Which I highly recommend because he went to Duke, so he can probably explain how he got dunked on using really cool big words.
