In a locker room cloaked in gloom from a fresh defeat, Paul Pierce perked up when the subject turned to Brandon Bass.
The Celtics captain praised the muscular forward’s performance against Oklahoma City Sunday, when Bass pulled down a career-high-tying 13 rebounds in a 91-79 loss.
[...] “That’s the Brandon we need every night,” said Pierce, whose Celtics face the bottom-feeding, 13-50 Charlotte Bobcats here Tuesday night.
[...] “I’ve got to be better, as far as being consistent, as far as defending and rebounding,” Bass said. “[Sunday] was a cool night to start doing that.”
[...] “He was very sound, very decisive in what he did,” Kevin Garnett said. “He moved the ball. I thought there were times when he was aggressive. He was active throughout the whole game.”
