Congrats Paul Pierce!

With a three pointer during the beginning of the third quarter against the Charlotte Bobcats at the TD Bank Garden, Paul Pierce surpassed Larry Bird on the Boston Celtics stats as the second all-time leading scorer.

I can't find the final all-time score for Paul Pierce yet but, with some quick math... his career points before tonight's game was 21,782. Pierce scored 15 points tonight (02/06/12). So, if my information and math is correct, that totals up to 21,797 career points surpassing Larry Bird's 21,791. In order to make it to the number one spot Pierce would need to beat John Havlicek's 26,395 points. It's not impossible... Oh yeah, the Celtics did play on after Paul Pierce's milestone and were able to win against the Bobcats by 10 points, 94-84.
