Best of Pierce: Pierce scores 40 against Cleveland

Posted by shawn cassidy on June 14, 2013 at 5:15 AM

It was a season of records for Pierce and KG.The 35-year old Pierce became the oldest player in Celtics history to score 40 points in a regulation game, carrying Boston to a 103-91 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2012-13 season. It was the first game of Paul's big two game span where he scored 40 and 35 points. Paul can't go out and score like that every night. But he can still be very effective. The game against Cleveland could be his last 40 point game, or it may not. Either way Paul gave us a glimpse of the past during the 2012-13 season.

''When I first came into the league I always asked myself, 'Do I want to be good or do I want to be great?' Pierce said. ''Every time I stepped out and worked on my game, that's what I asked myself. I always got here early and worked on my craft as hard as I could because I wanted to be one of the great players.''

Loved every moment of that game. I hope to see a game or two like that again.
