You're a Stud: Paul Pierce and Game 5

I know Rondo and KG had great games in the Celtics' Game 5 win over the Cavs last night, but I have to give the game ball up to Paul Pierce.

When the C's seemed cold and lackadaisical in the first quarter, I thought he was the one who gave them their energy, and without it, they would have been even more behind in the second. At the same time, when it came down to the wire (because the Cavs had a chance to steal one), you have to credit Pierce for making clutch free throws down the stretch that kept Lebron and Co. at bay (I think he scored like the last 8 or so in a row from the line).

And he still defended Lebron just as he has all series long while managing to put in a game high 29 points.
