Beast of the Night: Paul Pierce killed the Knicks last night with 32 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 2 threes and a game-winning jumper right in Amar’e Stoudemire’s goggled eye. He shot 56 percent (10-18) from the field, 100 percent (10-10) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. Pierce has been relatively quiet in December but this game reminds his owners that there’s nothing to worry about.
