Paul Pierce Hits Jumper, Blows Kisses To MSG Crowd
The Celtics and Knicks have been giving us some very entertaining games over the past few years. Although the Knicks have looked far better this season, the Celtics have been much improved over the past few games. Regardless, both teams tend to bring their best against each other.
Tonight, the Celtics got the last laugh, as they defeated the Knicks 102-96 in Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony struggled, and Paul Pierce turned in a great performance to the tune of 23 points and 6 assists on 10-18 shooting.
After Pierce hit a big late game jumper over Tyson Chandler, he decided to blow the crowd a kiss. Because, you know, he’s Paul Pierce. And he loves taunting Madison Square Garden. You can see the GIF below(credit to Hardwood Paroxysm):
The Celtics have looked much better since the return of Avery Bradley, and won tonight’s game with Rajon Rondo, who served his one game suspension.
If these two teams meet in the playoffs, we’re all in for a treat. That’s for sure.
