VIDEO: Paul Pierce Fires Up TD Garden

Paul Pierce gave the crowd a scare when he fell to the court in a heap after injuring his left knee late in the first half of Game 4 against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. He is back on the court in the second half, however, and is still dominating for the Boston Celtics. Pierce now has 24 points nearing the end of the third quarter on 10-for-13 shooting.

He got everyone on their feet early in the third quarter when he took a steal down to Boston's end of the court and forced Atlanta to foul. Video and gifs of fans and teammates going crazy after the jump.

And of course, some requisite Keyon Dooling:

The Celtics are still shooting 58.9 percent from the field for the game. They currently hold a 82-55 lead with 2:46 left to play in the third.
