Pierce Crowned Champ

All-Star Paul Pierce posted a score of 20 in the final round of the 3-Point Contest to defeat Stephen Curry and become the 2010 Foot Locker 3-Point Contest Champion on Saturday night.

Pierce won the 3-Point Shootout, proving his lackluster performance the last time he was in the competition was an aberration.

“I worked on it, I really took pride in it. In ’02 I stunk it up. I wanted to come in here and put on a show,” Pierce said. “I had to work on getting the technique down and knowing what side to pull the ball from, stuff like that. I knew if I got hot I could win it.”

Pierce had 20 points in the final round, making all five of the 2-point money balls, to beat Golden State’s Stephen Curry (17) and Denver’s Chauncey Billups (14).

When Pierce last competed in the Shootout in 2002, he scored only eight points — what he called leading into this week’s competition “almost a record low.”

With the win Saturday, Pierce became the first Celtics player since Larry Bird to win the contest. Pierce hit all five money balls in the final, and his 20 points marked the high score of the competition.

  1. non avrei mai pensato potesse vincere, dato che non è un tiratore puro, ma è riuscito a trovare il ritmo. P-square è capace di questo ed altro…

  2. infatti ha detto che la prima volta che è andato pensava bastasse saper tirare e invece poi si è accorto che bisogna prepararsi perchè tirare col carrello è tutto diverso.. stavolta si era allenato come un porco e gli è andata bene🙂 grandissimo
