The Boston Celtics defeated the Golden State Warriors 116-100 on Wednesday evening.
It was a dominant showing for the home team, especially in the fourth quarter when it mattered most.
A number of dignitaries were on hand at TD Garden to watch the Celtics triumph. Among them: franchise legend Paul Pierce.
After his squad’s impressive win, Pierce had some words for Warriors fans:

With social media being social media, reactions to Pierce’s comments were largely what you would expect:

This is just par for the course.
For whatever reason, the 2022 NBA Finals have been particularly chippy. So it makes sense that Pierce would feel some type of way about the Celtics gaining a 2-1 advantage on Wednesday night.

Will he get the opportunity to celebrate his squad winning their first NBA title since he left the organization?
Time will tell.
