Boston Celtics: Paul Pierce makes Kyrie Irving trade claim

  • Are the Celtics starting to put together something special

With the game on the line, he couldn't hide his emotions after Gordon Hayward made an inbound pass to Jayson Tatum for a game-tying fade away jump shot that bounced off the back of the rim as time expired.

Midway through the 82-game schedule, the Celtics find themselves stuck in the No. 5 spot in the conference standings with a 25-16 record, looking up at the Milwaukee Bucks, Toronto Raptors, Indiana Pacers and Philadelphia 76ers.

The Celtics begin the second half of the season on Saturday night in Orlando against the Magic (7:05, TV: NBC Sports Boston; radio: WROR-105.7 FM) as a three-game road trip continues. "I like Marcus' and Jaylen's character and personalities and feistiness, and, like, I just think nothing of something like this". Brad Stevens used his final timeout to advance the ball into the frontcourt and to draw up a play.

"I think they can get to the Finals", Pierce added. He said he's "focused on playing some good basketball".


"We have a long way to go, " said Stevens.

"I thought he would be in the middle of one of those... you guys looked at it as a negative I could not believe what I was seeing". Emotions happen in games, and I'm not anxious about it. Like Ainge says, it's good when players are upset when the team is losing because it shows they care. We're lacking it and, because of that, we have a lot of learning to do.

However, though you may see Smart get in a confrontation with Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith, Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons or even Sixers swingman Jimmy Butler, he has yet to be seen getting in a scuffle with a teammate.
