Paul Pierce’s monster fourth quarter Friday night — which included a pair of backbreaking three-pointers (can a back break twice?) — prompted lots of terrific reactions. (This was during Washington’s Game 3 win over the Raptors, needless to say.)
Pierce made Marcin Gortat scream toward the heavens.
Pierce made fancy-pants front-row Verizon Center patrons clamor after high-fives.
Pierce made Steve Buckhantz unleash one of his most memorable Daggers.
And Pierce inspired himself to drop another bit of Truth:
“That’s why I’m here,” Pierce yelled. Which is pretty much true.
