Video: Paul Pierce Nails Dagger Three Over LeBron James in Game 5

The Truth lives up to his nickname.

Hardly anyone believed the Boston Celtics could walk into Miami and steal Game 5, but that’s precisely what happened. Paul Pierce hit the shot of the night, right in LeBron’s eye. It’s now on to Beantown, for a potential close-out Game 6.

    the truth

  • http://Somethingsomething. Ugh

    I did not see that coming. But boy I’m happy it’s here.

  • The-DEC

    Ice water in those veins.

  • logues

    kg is balling right now.. his name on the cover of 160 better mean a lenghty article and not a “which nba player are you?” or some crap.

  • slamthis

    Underrated clutch player. The Truth, puts another dagger. Its definitely a payback from last year. DWade crying like a lil girl had me rolling. What a Diva!!!! Hoping C’s would close them out in game 6.

  • Lz – Cphfinest3

    Don’t believe the Lehype, that’s The Truth.

  • BostonBaller

    Decent game, big shot. I read on another post that PP was not a top SF. He takes and makes shots when the C’s are winning AND when they are losing. He hits big shots when it matters. No front running from him. Crying for calls maybe…clutch for sure.

  • Heals

    Series is far from ovah, but shht, you gotta respect the boys in green…

  • Dingo Rob

    KG post game comments were gold!

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    bad defense….great shot

  • http://slamonline.com Jones

    You can never count the Celtics out. You’d think we’d learn by now…

  • NYballr

    Mad respect to the Celtics, incredible win, and here’s to hoping they can keep LBJ ringless for another year~

    That was coooold bloooded!

    Ice cold. I guess when he said he was a top 5 SF he wasn’t lying. After all, he is “The Truth” :P

  • doyouwantmore

    Paul Pierce is like the opposite of James in every way. Clutch vs. Quitter, Humiliated on Draft Night vs. The Chosen One, Finals MVP with a ring vs. League MVP with none, Athleticism vs. Craftiness. – Imagine if you could transplant Paul Pierce’s brain into Lebron’s frame?

    Lol T-Ray click my name.

  • Drig

    Heat lost because they didn’t work as hard as the Cs did on D. Plain simple. Also, if Bosh can play extended minutes out there in game 6, this one swings right back into Heat’s favor as KG’s gonna wear down taking care of Bosh AND the Cs interior D. LBJ looked gassed out at the end there. That’s NOT good news for El Heat. But props to the Cs. As a Laker fan, I hope they get past the Heat because they’re playing better and I want to see Duncan vs KG in the Finals but I hope they get swept 4-0 in the Finals :D .

    Lol nbk classic Rick James

  • http://www.sportsgrid.com/media/shaq-kobe-highlights/ shutup

    very entertaining game. Whowouldathunkit? C’s up 3-2

  • everything

    me thinks miami tanked game 5

  • Ali

    Hahaha, A str-8 Dagger! Love to see the Big 3 vets getting busy…End it at home C’s! Back to the drawing MIA! Can’t wait to hear and see the backlash from MIA not winning for the second year in a row after the decision and arena concert with only Bosh and Wade on the stage, and Bron’ boasting about them winning 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 chips together…Hahahah…He’ll never live that shi* down! or see a chip.

  • Kadavour

    it’s annoying to see Slam contribute to the mass media’s characterization of this win as a steal. they OUTPLAYED Miami. The Celtics won.

  • larrylegend

    where’s inside the nba when u need it?


    This is a story about Love & Hate… But im not mad at the haters for jumpin on this one & it was a nice shot by P.P. & looks like Boston can take this one now but its conferene finals. Anything CAN happen nakaz ! Bring it!

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    @T-Ray, if you watch Pierce’ lips he actualy says “I’m cold blooded, I’m cold blooded” as he’s running back. Classic.
    @LarryLegend, I agree. The NBA should go to Inside after every game, not just the ones they’re covering. The ESPN dudes are horrible.

  • Clydesays


  • Fat Lever

    What was Pierce saying when he was coming up the court after hitting that shot? I was trying to figure it out.

  • BlackStar

    Paul Peezy for sheeezy! I wonder what excuse Bron fans will have after they fail.

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    @Fat Read my previous post.

  • Harlem_World

    The Truth will set you free, no doubt. But the real difference is, KG is healthy and playing with something to prove and Rondo isn’t hurt either. Heads forget this might have happened last year if Rondo didn’t go down with the dislocated elbow. He’s putting on a CLINIC out there at the point. Bosh better do something, because KG is KILLIN the Heat on the interior, on both ends of the floor. KG Vs Timmy one more time would be a nice way for one or both of them to go out in the finals. Got to respect what the C’s have done this post season. If only Bradley didn’t get hurt and Ray was on good wheels…

  • http://stapledesign.com Spaceship Jay

    JTaylor; good defense, unexpected shot… therefore great shot.

  • lakernation

    Fat Lever: even without audio proof, if he really muttered that: epic.
    Him mouthing ‘i’m coldblooded’ was already superb, but that? Yikes.

  • DruNyce

    He said “I’m cold blooded.”

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    He said “I’m cold like lakernation’s bed because he has no girl or anyone else who’s attracted to him”.
