Video: Full highlights of Pierce's 40 point night

Paul Pierce was on fire last night vs. the Cavs. He shot 13/16 from the field and 6/7 from behind the arc. This means his eFG% was a remarkable 100% And for kicks he was also a perfect 8/8 from the line. That's pretty much the equivalent of a perfect game.

Pierce wasn't just satisfied putting up big scoring numbers. He also finished with 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 1 block. Paul Pierce is 9th in the league in scoring averaging 20.4 points per game. Not sure why people have been critical of Pierce this season. To me he's continuing to do what he's always done. All at the age of 35. A true Celtic for Life.
