8 a.m. ET: Paul Pierce’s favorite haunts in Boston may want to set an extra space for him on Wednesday. Those are the only places the former Celtic is likely to make an appearance on Wednesday.
Pierce and Kevin Garnett will not suit up for the Nets’ preseason game against the Celtics. Pierce will not even step foot in TD Garden, he told reporters this week.
“We’re not playing in Boston,” Pierce said, according to the New York Daily News. “We’ll save it for the one trip in January.”
This is the final preseason game for the Celtics and the second-to-last preseason game for the Nets, who will close out the exhibition portion of the season against the Heat on Friday. It is unknown if Pierce or Garnett will play in that game.
Join us for updates and analysis from TD Garden during the game, which tips off at 7 p.m. ET.
