Pierce is bringing his "old-man game," and as he is want to say, "giving the game what it needs."  PP is getting buckets, rebounds and playing an overall smarter game.  He exploded out of the gates against the Warriors, being his usual efficient self finishing 9 for 15 line finishing with 26 points, eight rebounds, four assists, ...

Reports: Doc is leaving it up to Pierce whether he takes a night off or not

Doc Rivers is leaving it up to Paul Pierce whether or not he should sit out a game to help recuperate the pinched nerve in his neck. According to Boston Globe, Courtney Lee said Pierce has a “get out of playing” card he has yet to cash in. While it makes sense for Doc to let Pierce sit out a game if he asked for a night off, (it's not like Rivers is going to say, “No...

Bradley leads C’s Sunday workout

As John wrote earlier today, Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce, Jet & KG were all absent from today’s workout. So who kept things organized while the vets & head coach were away?
