Celtics Doing 'White-Out' For Paul Pierce Ceremony With These T-Shirts

Celtics Doing 'White-Out' For Paul Pierce Ceremony With These T-Shirts

In his first time back in Boston since retiring and joining ESPN, the Celtics honored Pierce with a tribute video.

Pierce and James had many memorable playoff battles, including Pierce going on to win the NBA Finals after scoring 41 points in Game 7 of the 2008 Eastern Conference Semifinals to eliminate the Cavaliers despite 45 points from James.

Irving wanted the opportunity to shine away from LeBron James and the five-time All-Star has delivered a career season and he has shown that he is an elite scorer who isn't afraid of big moments. He chipped in eight during a 13-2 burst that turned a one-point deficit into a double-digit lead. The Cavaliers defeated the Atlanta Hawks, 123-107, in which LeBron James scored a triple-double while Kyle Korver exploded with 30 points in 9 of 16 shooting from the field and 5 of 5 from the free throw line.




Terry Rozier scored 21 points with nine assists and Kyrie Irving scored 18 against his former teammates before sitting out the final quarter in the loss. Marcus Morris was the only other player in double figures with 17 for Boston, which dropped its second straight.

Cleveland proceeded to close out the quarter on a 24-12 run to go up 64-52 at halftime and outscored the hosts 31-22 in the third. Unfortunately, the day will be remembered much less for Pierce's jersey retirement and more for the new-look Cavs turning the corner and manhandling Boston, 121-99. Allen's Instagram post with the hole-in-one making George Lopez (damn him) and the Celtics reunion photo from the game just further prove that fact.

James collided with Aron Baynes with about five minutes left in the first quarter and hobbled to the sidelines.
