Paul Pierce: Clutch Master

Being Paul Pierce has been involved in several record setting comebacks i think "The Truth" deserves note as one of the clutchest players ever. With last year setting the record for most losses by the Celtics they quickly recovered with the additions of Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, James Posey, Eddie House, P.J Brown, and other notable players to go on to have a 66 win season and adding the biggest NBA win turn around in league history. We've seen his teams set several records, coming back in 2002 with " Toine' " vs. the Nets down by 20 to make the biggest 4th quarter comeback in playoff history, This year in the Finals vs. the Lakers rallying from 24 down to win game 4 (Paul's defense was key), and of course the win differential record stated earlier. He always seems to have that never die mentality and puts his full ability to play out there injured, tired, and anything else that might cause a problem. I love the motivation and intensity this team brings to the table hopefully we can cap this season off with #17. Go Celts!
