Pierce, Celtics Smoke the Blazers
Paul Pierce had one of his best games this season, scoring 28 points on 9-11 shooting from the field, but his best work came with seconds to spare, dishing the rock to Jesus "Ray Allen" Shuttlesworth for the clutch 3 bomb. Ray was ice cold all game, but when the game was on the line, the Truth knew who had to take the shot.
This kind of chemistry between the players has been carefully crafted, much like how a raw diamond is turned into a beautiful stone on a wedding band. Trust between the Big Three has grown since they were put on the same team in 07. Unselfish play like this is what makes this Big Three actually work together, play that has been M.I.A. in South Beach this season.
Glen Davis chipped in for 16 points off the bench in another solid effort, he looks to be well on his way to Celtics 6th man of the year. The Celtics look to tame the always feisty Bulls at the Garden tomorrow, and after a stroll through New Jersey, will welcome 'Melo and the Nuggz to Boston for what should be an exciting contest.
In other news, look for the first 7dayweekend live blog from the Garden tonight, where the Bruins look to exact some revenge on Steven Stamkos and the Lightning. The Q Man will be blogging, thanks to the droid, in section 318.
