    I watched this 5x immediately after it happened.

  • Joe

    This is one of those dunks that make you just start speaking in tongues.

  • Pharoah

    Saw this live and after the dunk raps were completely demoralized damn u pierce!

    That was one nasty dunk by Paul Pierce.

  • Marvin

    i dont c this 2 much from Pierce’s kind of game, but when i saw this, i said “BOOM,” like from the Nike commercial. this better b on the SportsCenter top 10 2nite

  • rob stewart

    Had no idea he had this in him. I don’t think he ever actually touched the rim

  • Heals

    He has much more bounce this year (2 weeks ago on Low Williams and even some chase down blocks) and looks real healthy, except for that ankle roll on the last dunk…

  • ripslam

    P used to throw it down back in the early ’00s. And he destroyed Bosh Spice last year.

  • theDankerNuggets

    One of the nastiest dunks i have ever seen, from one of the least likeliest players.

  • rashado

    wheres the 1 with on mcgee by ariza?

    @rob, Pierce threw one down more vicious then this against the Lakers in 06 I believe, search on Youtube :)

    Wow, that was Paul Pierce? He didn’t even offensive foul either. Most of the time when someone gets dunked on there’s a huge forearm shove the refs (and the fans) tend to overlook. But he just swung his arm back and threw it down, no dirty business whatsoever. Well, except for the slam.

    PS: Von Wafer sighting!

  • tony knorr

    nice reference to the bosh dunk last year. its as if paul pierce just has it out for the raptors and saves all his hops for one dunk per year against the raps cause last year he almost killed bosh with one.

  • Bdub

    The truth

  • flipnoyce

    Thats my fav player right there. Pierce don’t care much for dunks anymore but he still has it though from time to time.He got one of those sneaky dunks.Nice one!!!

  • max

    Mr. Pierce get back in your wheelchair and stop harassing those young boys… they just want to play.

  • bravo

    wow @ the air canada center there were some damn boston fans.

  • bravo

    damn you celtics fans. ur never gonna win a chip AGAIN

    The green decepticon strikes again (looks slow, looks like he likes his bacon in the morning with no bread, then BOOM. Poster)

    Young legs….?

  • max

    does anyone know if Rondo was awarded an assist on that play?

  • Yesse

    How did he do that? I haven’t seen Pierce up there for years.

  • Randy Brown

    I’m claiming CGI on this, is George Lucas a Celtics fan?

  • ripslam

    @max: I doubt it, Pierce dribbled twice before elevating.

    Paul LOVES dunking on the Raptors.

  • Cizzo

    Double P is givint he league all it can stand right now and this is a percfect example……

  • Thinktank

    Paul Pierce has had a few of these deceptive/surprising dunks throughout the last few years…and this dunk was worthy of quite a few replays for me!

  • reald1

    he kicked bosh in da nuts last year dats how he got the dunk

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Did he really dunk it, or did he just throw it in like Blake and Dwight did?

  • Riggs

    he really dunked it allen i had to look a couple of times

  • toinefan88

    Paul don’t surprise me anymore.

  • kc

    wow and he didn’t even need his wheel chair.

  • kc

    i didn’t even know he could dunk

  • http://google c_cantrell

    damn dont get to see him do this too much anymore

  • ClydeSays

    It’s funny, bc he does this once about every few games and folks react the same way every time. “I didn’t know he could do that…”

  • OvaChicken

    !!!!!! P.P. to the BUNGHOLE !!!!!!

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    Anyone else catch his other dunk late in the game? He had a breakaway which he hammered down DeRozan style, screamed to the heavens…. then limped grimacing off the court with a sprained ankle. Hi-la-rious.

  • OvaChicken

    not bad for a 6.9′ guy who’s never been in the gym.

  • jufu

    *ding* fourth floor.

  • http://slamonline.com Saviour

    Has nobody removed their tongue from PP’s behind to notice it WASN’T a dunk?

    Flash back to D.Howard’s superman ‘dunk’ and you all went on…and on….AND ON…and about how it wasn’t a true dunk; this is the same, he doesn’t touch the rim.

  • zc

    Watch “Big Baby”

  • flipnoyce

    Boston Celtics will never get another chip if they move the team to Canada!

  • lockon

    the truth has been throwing it down before, he just doesnt do it that often as before. really nasty dunk.

  • Riggs

    @”Saviour”, except his fingers did touch the rim you dummy.
