Paul Pierce Wants to Defend Three-Point Title

As one of the greatest shooters of all-time, according to Paul Pierce anyway, he wants a chance to reclaim his long-distance crown during All-Star Weekend. From the Boston Herald:  Paul Pierce said [Saturday] night he plans to defend his 3-point title on All-Star Saturday in Los Angeles next month. ‘A chance to win two in a row and do it in my hometown,’ he said, ‘I think I’ve got to go for that.’ When he won last year in Dallas, a jovial Pierce proclaimed himself one of the best shooters of all-time. ‘If I win two in a row, you definitely have to say that,’ he added [Saturday] night as he was kidded by writers. Pierce made 2-of-4 treys in the 85-83 loss to the Wizards, improving to 42.7 percent from the distance. He came into the game 14th in the league.”
