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.
