Doc Rivers was on Dennis and Callahan this morning, and he revealed all sorts of injury news.
was not getting better. Paul had some bone spurs that may need to be
removed as well. (Kendrick Perkins) may have to have a procedure on his
shoulder… In Ray’s case, I thought his hamstring was bothering him a
lot. That could have had an effect on him (during the Magic series).
Wow. Amazing what we didn't know. I kept saying Pierce was tired. Matt Moore of Hardwood Paroxysm kept saying Pierce is hurt. Guess Matt was right. There's a first time for everything.
Gotta say… I'm almost glad that Ray didn't use that as an excuse. He just sat there and took the slings and arrows from everyone and he could have easily said "look, I'm not 100%." But he lives by the "if I can walk, I can play" creed.
I hope that changes a few minds around here.
