Best of Pierce: Pierce propels Celtics over Heat when they lose Rondo

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.

Pierce can still be great. Don't trade him Danny!

Trade him! Nah just messing. Just one more year on his contract. Let him ride it out.

Not funny! Kidding. I think at this point, until further notice. Let Pierce stay

But if we can trade him for Smith, and if Pierce really just won't change his ways? Do we have a choice? We cannot continue to have him and Rondo competing for team leadership. We cannot have that one more season.

In a series vs miami if pierce could have 2 games like this and rondo can put together 2 outstanding efforts we'd be able to win

I agree, but we need the two guys to be able to play off each other, not just exchange big games. Of course, part of that is that it creates room for one or the other to have a big game.
