Big Three's defining moments
Pierce passes Bird
Paul Pierce passed Larry Bird for No. 2 on the Celtics' all-time scoring list in 2012, eclipsing Bird's 21,791 points in a game against Charlotte on Feb. 7. It was a big moment for Pierce, who took a step toward more complete recognition as one of the all-time Celtics greats. Pierce now trails only John Havlicek, who holds the high mark among all Celtics scorers with 26,395 points.
