Paul Pierce has been consistently good this year

Last year it was rough to see Pierce start off the year hurt (and end the year hobbled). But so far this year he's been the Truth that we all know and love.

Pierce is Captain Consistency - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Saturday's fourth-quarter shootout with Monta Ellis is perhaps the most glaring example of Pierce's scoring exploits, but his go-ahead 3-pointer with just over 2½ minutes to play against the Washington Wizards helped guide Boston to its first win of the season last weekend. And then there was Friday night. Even though the C's ultimately fell to the 76ers, Pierce was one of the only ones giving Boston a fighting chance. He scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter on 4-of-6 shooting, splashing a 3-pointer, a jump shot, a pair of layups, and a free throw during the final frame.

We just need more contributions from the bench to keep him fresh and healthy all year long.
