Pierce Eager to Play against Artest

Posted By Jessica Camerato On October 11, 2008 @ 4:49 pm In General | No Comments

At some point tonight Paul Pierce [1] was led to believe that he wasn’t going to play against the Houston

Rockets. He had just worked up a sweat shooting around and was ready to go. Pierce muttered his frustrations as he hit the floor for push ups.

He didn’t just want to play basketball ‘€“ he wanted to take on Ron Artest [2].

‘€œI always want to play against Ron Artest,’€ Pierce said. ‘€œI think we both bring out the best in each other. I think he’s the best perimeter defender in the league.’€

Turns out Pierce will play tonight, and more than he did on Friday against the Cleveland Cavaliers [3]. Doc Rivers [4] expects the Big Three to play solid minutes in both halves, given that the team has the day off tomorrow.
