Boston forward Paul Pierce makes fun of Miami's LeBron James's "Decision" on Twitter after the Celtics beat the Heat on Thursday night. Posted by Ben Golliver

Nothing tastes sweeter than a big win in a rivalry game, and the Boston Celtics are surely exuberant after dominating the Miami Heat in their own house on Thursday night in front of a national television audience. Pierce finished with 25 points on the night, and turned to Twitter for some post-game trash talking after the game. "It's been a pleasure to bring my talents to South Beach, now on to Memphis," Pierce tweeted.  The tweet is a clear reference to "The Decision," a televised special in which Miami forward LeBron James announced to the world that he would be leaving the Cavaliers to join the Heat using the phrase, "I'm taking my talents to South Beach." paul-pierce-twitter James' arrival in Miami was supposed to establish a Heat dynasty, one capable of overcoming Boston's aging Big Three of Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. It hasn't worked out that way so far, as the Celtics are up in the season series 2-0, thanks to fantastic play from point guard Rajon Rondo and some unorganized, inefficient and inconsistent offense for Miami. Pierce has every right to throw this jab, as James opened himself up completely to criticism and jokes by making his free agency decision in such a public manner. And because Pierce has won an NBA title, whereas James has not. Call this one of the spoils of being a victor.  For James, silence is the best response. It's time for James to join his Heat teammates in licking their collective wounds and to start figuring out how to stack up some Ws, given their 5-4 record on the season is well below their own lofty expectations. As Pierce mentioned, the Celtics conclude their current four-game road trip against the Grizzlies on Saturday night in Memphis.

Paul Pierce mocks LeBron James on Twitter

Yep, never have been much of a Celtics fan but this is starting to be fun watching a team of superstars that colluded to form a cartel in Miami, fail in the regular season at least. Miami is the land of fraudulent real estate deals, medicare and medicaid fraud & abuse, now their basketball team is a fraud.

We saw it when they went out and mortgaged their youth and betray Van Gundy for a title in the middle of the last decade. Miami got duped and bought these franchise players. Nobody could've predicted 5-4, but rather hoped for it. The betrayal of Cleveland and it's NBA franchise. I love the picture of LeBron with his hands over his face. If there is a God, he will surely have a bottom seed East playoff team sweep the Heat, that's if they even make the playoffs ?

Pierce having the amazing ability to suffer debilitating injuries and then miraculously return within minutes without showing any signs of being hurt doesn't make him a punk. You're just jealous that you don't have a real live super hero on your team.

Pierce's jab was worth a chuckle but nowhere near South Park's hilarious parody of "The Decision". Speaking of which, I wonder how long  until Miami realizes that they won't be able to do anything without a true inside presence to rebound and play D. Maybe they should have picked up Joel Pryzbilla instead of Chris Bosh, who isn't even as useful as Udonis Haslem. WHERE ARE YOU CAPTAIN HINDSIGHT!?!?

Not a fan of Paul Pierce. He's a punk too. But in this case, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
