Recap: Watching Paul Pierce play against the Celtics is STRANGE

Recap: Watching Paul Pierce play against the Celtics is STRANGE

The Celtics lost 82-80 to the Brooklyn Nets tonight. I watched nearly all of this game (No way I could bail on the Red Sox) in a daze. Maybe I’ve had my fill of preseason basketball or maybe my brain had difficulty processing Paul Pierce in a Brooklyn Nets uniform. It was freakin’ weird. The [...]

Recap: C’s put on Klynyk in New Hampshire

Before tonight’s game with the Knicks, coach Brad Stevens said it would be important for Boston to get off to a fast start.
