Paul Pierce might rest tonight

Hearing Paul pierce may have tonight off for rest — greg dickerson (@gdickerson_csn) March 12, 2013 Got to hand it to Doc… he’s taking advantage of the schedule to rest guys at times that minimize the impact on the team. If Pierce sits, Jeff Green will start.  I’m also going to bet this means KG sits tomorrow night.  He’s due for another day off.

Paul Pierce ‘Wouldn’t Give Any Negative Backlash’ If Celtics Buy Him Out This Offseason

Unthinkable as it may seem given his recent stellar play, Paul Pierce will one day play his final game in a Celtics uniform. That could be as soon as this summer, in fact.

The team therefore has to decide whether the $10 million savings...

Paul Pierce goes on the record, says he wants to see the Heat in the playoffs

Paul Pierce to get night off vs. Bobcats?

From CSNNE's Greg Dickerson: Hearing Paul pierce may have tonight off for rest — greg dickerson (@gdickerson_csn) March 12, 2013 If Dickerson is right, this seems like a well timed and wise decision by Doc.  The last time he rested one of his stars the KG-less C's played one of their better offensive games of the season, blowing out the Suns 113-88 in Phoenix in the...

Celtics-Raptors Live: With Paul Pierce Back in Uniform, Celts Aim to Snap Losing Streak

8 a.m. ET: OK, so the first part of this back-to-back didn’t go the way the Celtics planned. With Paul Pierce taking the night off, the Celtics “laid an egg” in Charlotte on Tuesday, in coach Doc Rivers’ words, dropping their second straight game and losing a bit more ground in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Raptors-Celtics Preview
