What Happened Last Night: The Lakers Beat The Thunder (!), The NFC Beat The AFC In The Pro Bowl You Didn’t Watch
You know that lingering parasite, the one in which several non-selected all-star football players compete in a game wearing brightly colored uniforms? Right, the Pro Bowl. Well that went on last night because Roger Goodell enjoys hanging onto the vestiges of decorum, or something. The NFC won, by the way. Oh and there was basketball all day, too.
It’s hard to imagine that Paul Pierce could dunk impressively once upon a time, now that his game is built on wile and ingenuity more than anything else. But Pierce was a do-it-all two-guard back in the day, and he could throw it down when called upon. Like for high school dunk contests, say – even though he might be a bit overly ambitious here.
Paul Pierce is still a pretty damn good player (19.7 points, 5.6 boards, 1.5 steals, 19.17 PER so far this season), which is especially impressive for a guy who just turned 35. But lately – over the last week in particular – he’s been having this problem. A problem defending against crossover dribble moves, to be exact. On Sunday, you might remember, Jameer Nelson did this to him. And last night, well, see above. [SB Nation]
Paul Pierce, kind veteran that he is, welcomes NBA rookies with open arms. Take Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas, for example. Pierce rumbled down the lane and threw down a dunk in his face. So kind! And maybe one of these days, he’ll even have Amir Johnson teach him how to pronounce Valanciunas’ name.
The Truth gets fancy. The Celtics would go on to beat the Wizards at TD Garden last night, 100-94.
Cute. Paulina Gretzky went in a different direction.
