Paul Pierce knew what was on the line with every shot.

”It was a relief. So much was hanging over me the last couple of days. Just hearing about it and knowing that you’ve got a game to play,” said Pierce, who finished with 15 points. ”Just to be mentioned with him, with this organization, is a great honor.”

Pierce now stands alone at No. 2 – and it is quite a list – with 21,797 points, six more than Bird’s total of 21,791. Only John Havlicek has scored more in team history with 26,395 points.
