Paul Pierce Dominates Overtime in Win Over the Utah Jazz (VIDEO)

He’s nicknamed The Truth for a reason.

The Truth went bonkers down the stretch in Utah last night, as Paul Pierce led the weary Boston Celtics to a tough 110-107 road win over the Jazz. He scored 7 straight overtime points to ice the victory. Per the Deseret News: “In the OT, Pierce was 3 for 3, while Kevin Garnett was 2 for 2. Pierce finished with a game-high 26 and Garnett added 13. ‘Paul, down the stretch, just carried us,’ said Boston coach Doc Rivers. ‘Feed the pig,’ I kept yelling, ‘feed the pig.’ He had it going, so feed him.’ [...] Afterward, Pierce tried to deflect attention from himself, calling it a team effort and praising Boston’s young guards, Avery Bradley and Lee, who scored 18 and 14, respectively. He talked about his mindset in the overtime ‘Just stay aggressive and take the shots that are there,’ he said. ‘I thought I got a good look — sometimes they fall and sometimes they don’t. Usually in overtime on a long road trip, you can kind of give in mentally. … But this team showed tremendous fight, dug in and did what it had to do.’ Rivers called the win the ‘best of the year’ for him. ‘We came in on fumes and we hung in there and hung in there,’ he said. ‘This says a lot about our team.’”
