Paul Pierce: ‘I’m probably at about 83.7 percent’

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On January 28, 2012 @ 12:47 am In General | No Comments

After totaling 52 points, 18 assists and 16 rebounds in consecutive wins against the Magic and Pacers, Celtics [1] captain Paul Pierce [2] discussed the improving health of the sore right heel that kept him out of training camp.

Pierce’s recent hot stretch raises his career total to 21,676 points, just 115 behind Pacers president Larry Bird [3] for second on the C’s all-time scoring list. There’s at least a chance Pierce could achieve the mark in seven games (if not sooner) against the Lakers in Boston on Feb. 9. Of course, you’ll remember Allen set the NBA’s all-time 3-point record against Kobe Bryant [4] & Co. in the Garden last season.
