Paul Pierce tweeted a suggestion to the NBA regarding the league's Three-Point Contest.

"I think me and Ray Allen need to have a shootout in this years 3pt contest what y'all think come on NBA make it happen," tweeted the Celtics captain Monday.

Pierce won the contest last year in Dallas. This year's event will take place as part of the NBA's All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles.

Allen would be a logical selection this season. He has the fifth-best 3-point shooting percentage in the league (45.4) and he is currently 13 threes away from breaking Reggie Miller's all-time record.

Pierce is shooting 42.3 percent from behind the arc, which places him 15th in the league.
