Paul Pierce the passer

We all know that Paul Pierce can score. But he also does a lot more.

Pierce turns playmaker to help Celtics beat Brooklyn

It was Pierce's first double-digit assist game this season, and 23rd of his career. "I tell you guys all the time, I try to give the game what I feel it needs," Pierce said.

...And when Pierce has been in a pass-first mode, the Celtics have been extremely successful. In the 23 games in which Pierce has had 10 or more assists, the Celtics are an impressive 18-5 which includes the C's winning the last nine such games.

Some of that has to be his teammates making shots and the offense working appropriately. But let's give Paul some credit. Like he says, he does what the team needs to win.
