Paul Pierce moves into 15th place on NBA’s all-time scoring list (VIDEO)

With a three-pointer early in the first quarter on Monday, Paul Pierce passed Alex English to move into 15th place on the NBA’s all-time career scoring list.

Interestingly enough, the next player Pierce has the opportunity to pass is Kevin Garnett, who of course played alongside him in Boston during the Celtics’ 2008 championship season.

Garnett currently sits 262 points ahead of Pierce, and based on their current per-game averages, while it’s very possible that Pierce moves up a notch this year, it’s a bit more likely that he does so only by choosing to come back to play again next season.
