It's Paul Pierce's day in Boston. It's turned into a sad day.

The day began with everyone at TD Garen - including Pierce - really pumped up. It was a sellout crowd, some of his former teammates were in attendance and the Cavs were in town.

Fast forward a couple of hours and everyone is pretty miserable. Cleveland has just ruined the day.

The new-look Cavs are steam-rolling the No. 2 team in the Eastern Conference. The game really hasn't been close since late in the second quarter.

With about 4 minutes to play, Cleveland is up by 25 points. They lead, 111-86, with 4:16 left.

The Cavs have made easy work of the best defense in the East. Cleveland has made 14 of 28 3s and is shooting better than 50 percent from the field.

Let's check in on how Pierce is handling this:

Welp. Hopefully everyone can cheer up after the game.

Pierce's jersey retirement ceremony is set to take place immediately after the contest.
