“I have an opinion,” Paul Pierce said to a Spanish newspaper in the middle of the summer. “I have a right to have one and that’s the way I feel. I felt I’ve played against the best over the years and felt right now that I’m the best player in the world.”
If you just watched the Celtics hand the Hawks their first loss of the season, you might agree.
The Truth has HUGE down the stretch from a three-point play with about 1:37 left to play to a game-winning, step-back fadeaway before time expired.
Finishing the game with 34 points on 14 shots, I don’t know if there’s a guy I’d rather give the ball to with 12 minutes left on the game clock. He’s arguably the NBA’s best clutch scorer and could even be the Celtics’ greatest pure scoring machine.
And to think, he did it all without Antoine Walker…
How many games will the Celtics win this season?
