Pierce Eager to Play against Artest

At some point tonight Paul Pierce 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.

“I always want to play against Ron Artest,” Pierce said. “I 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. Doc Rivers expects the Big Three to play solid minutes in both halves, given that the team has the day off tomorrow.
