Video: Paul Pierce ‘Tebows’ After Icing Game 2 vs Atlanta Hawks

That’s one way to celebrate hitting a free throw.

Paul Pierce capped his monster Game 2 performance last night by hilariously pulling the infamous Tim Tebow celebration/prayer. From the AJC: “The Celtics’ first few plays – all designed for Paul Pierce — were scripted. His Tebowing moment, well, that was not. Pierce scored the Celtics’ first nine points en route to a game-high 36 points in an 87-80 victory over the Hawks Tuesday night at Philips Arena. He also scored nine of their final 13 points to even the Eastern Conference playoff series a game apiece, sending it to Boston for Games 3 and 4. ‘He was a monster,’ Celtics coach Doc Rivers said simply. The load was heavy for Pierce as the Celtics were without all-star point guard Rajon Rondo, suspended for Game 2 of the series after bumping a referee. He also grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds, 13 on the defensive glass, and had four assists. During a timeout late in the game, with the Celtics holding a comfortable lead, Pierce stopped at midcourt and got down on one knee. A Tim Tebow gesture right on the Hawks logo. ‘It just came to me,’ Pierce said.”

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    In agreement with Rasheed.
    And Tim Tebow is already an icon.

  • ClydeSays

    Big game from Pierce at the right time. Can’t stand Tebow or “The Tebow”, but I love PP’s attitude.

  • Will Lee

    he’s having fun, gotta love it

  • Mike Mihalow

    What’s next? Is Garnett gonna plank in halftime. Rondo owling from the bench?

  • Saku 39

    Surprised Jeff Teague didn’t unlock his inner George Teague and tackle Pierce at halfcourt.

  • markymark

    My fave cats ever are Sheed and AI, but I’ve also had mad love for Pierce since the stabbing incident and singlehandedly demolished Jersey in a playoff game through his epic 4th Q comeback.

  • vilmar

    Damn..didn t know EJ played for THAT team!!!


    Imagine if Tebow did blood sweat and tears to a d-lineman?

    The Tebow on the logo was well deserved. The Hawks played perhaps the worst secong half offensivley that I’ve ever seen. And that reverse spin through the double team wassss crazy.

  • Jerome

    That reverse spin looked like a carry. Bball should be played by the rules. Like when P.Gasol landed before releasing a deciding jumper from 10′ in the Finals. I don’t care if people travel on clear fast breaks, but travelling in traffic in the lane and carrying the ball are almost as out of place as “Tebowing” on a basketball court. Although, great game by Pierce.

    what the hell is “Tebowing”?

  • Big Balls Smalls

    P-Double! *in overenthusiastic emphasizing the final syllable while saying a players name Steve Smith/Dennis Scott voice*

  • jay

  • Klemperer

    The truth warming up for the national day of prayer. He’s got my respect.

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    @albie1kenobi – Yeah, nobody outside America gives a %#&*. I have no idea what this stuff is, either. Something about NFL or something.

  • RickyRude

    Pierce was f’n filthy that game. Give ‘em hell, Celtics!
