Paul Pierce squashes Cavs comback, Celtics win 103-91

Losing streak snapped thanks to The Truth.

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Paul Pierce ladies and gentlemen. He's the soul reason we have a reason to exhale instead of lamenting an epic collapse.

Up 20 points in the second half, Kyrie Irving led the Cavs on a huge comeback to erase that whole lead. The Celtics were too passive and taking too many jump shots. Thankfully the Cavs remembered that they are the Cavs (without Varejao) and they started turning the ball over, leading to easy buckets. Then Pierce (who already was having an incredible game) took over once again and shut the door on Cleveland.

It wasn't pretty but it was a win, and we'll take that right now.
