Paul Pierce speaks on the Celtics – NBA Blog

This won’t shock you, but Paul Pierce has some good things to say about the Boston Celtics. Via the

Paul Pierce knows what it takes to bring an NBA title to Boston.

The Celtics legend was the NBA Finals MVP for the organization’s last championship team in 2008. Fourteen years later, with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown leading a Celtics squad that’s won 18 of its last 21 games, Pierce believes that this current iteration of the Celtics might hit the same ceiling as the 2008 Celtics.

“Well, Jayson Tatum’s playing at an MVP level. The Celtics are playing their best basketball right now,” Pierce told NBC Sports Boston’s Abby Chin during Friday night’s Celtics game. “If they continue to play like this, I could see them in the Eastern Conference Finals and possibly the NBA Finals.”

Pierce is perfectly correct on this, of course. The Celtics are currently 5th, and rising lately, in a tight Eastern conference race whose mid and upper seeds are wide open for the taking.

After a slow start to the season, Celtics basketball is on a serious roll these days, and they’re playing as well as almost any team in the league.
