Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. But when I asked Pierce if he wanted to end his career as a Celtic, there wasn't much passion in his response. It's probably a cautionary reflex that comes with being in the NBA long enough to see every possible scenario unfold. "You ask anybody in the league who's been somewhere as long as I have, why wouldn't they [want to stay]?" Pierce said. "But at the end of the day I know it's a business. There's only so much I control. "Shaq's been traded; everybody's been traded. I don't know if anything is in anybody's hands.

Celtics beat LA!! (work with me here)

  This one looked like a classic 2011-2012 Celtics game.... come out big, suck in the 2nd, show some signs of life, blow it in the last 5 minutes.

Suns try to get back to .500 against Pistons

Recap: C's hold on to beat Warriors

  AP Photo Ok, so I was a little off about how this game would go.  At least I got the part about the win right.  The Celtics played some pretty terrible basketball for a good portion of this game, but they got the 105-103 win. KG was the hero tonight.  24 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for the Big Ticket, who canned a long jumper with 5 seconds left to give the C'...
