Paul Pierce Isn't Even Sniffing Shots

It really is amazing how much the 76ers are swarming Paul Pierce. He has just four shots in the entire game, and it’s because the 76ers are sending double- and triple-teams every time he has the ball. A recent play was a good example. Pierce caught the ball deep in the post and three 76ers surrounded him. Pierce kicked the ball out for a converted Brandon Bass jumper, but the 76ers will take that.

Bass and Kevin Garnett need to get more assertive. Garnett is starting to do so, and it’s bringing the Celtics back into the game.
