Vintage Pierce Leads Celtics to 116-95 Win over Lakers

If you missed this game, wow I feel bad for you. Tonight was a vintage Paul Pierce game, led by an offensive explosion in the third quarter. The first half played at a much slower pace, dominated by the refs but the Celtics had the game in their control all night. Pierce led the Celtics with 24 and Bean was the leading scorer for the Flakers with 27. The Truth was obviously jacked up for this game per usual against his home town team, but this felt different. It almost felt pre-big three Pierce of old when he carried the team offensively, which I loved every second of. Pierce's final stat line was 24, 7 Reb, 6 Ast and 1 Blk... THE TRUTH
