The Celtics were dealing with a 6 game losing streak, and on top of that the team didn't know their fate after the game. Rondo was gone,and the Celtics beat the best team in the NBA on one Sunday afternoon. That win gave Celtic fans a lot of hope. It didn't mean anything in the long run. The Celtics couldn't keep the great play going without Rondo. Pierce was the guy that the C's needed on that Sunday afternoon.
He delivered the knockout blow against Miami, and a win over Miami feels so good anytime of year. Paul Pierce put up a triple-double of 17 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in Mr.Triple-Doubles absence. This game was a smart game from Pierce. Something that you hope for from Pierce in his old age.
