Celtics sell Paul Pierce shirt-jerseys for $45 apiece

Celtics sell Paul Pierce shirt-jerseys for $45 apiece

Sunday saw the first action from each of the new members (as well as another starting opportunity for plucky upstart Cedi Osman, who is quickly becoming LeBron's newest high-energy mascot - a role vacated for a couple years after Anderson Varejao was traded).

Amen to that as the additions they have are more than enough to make them heavy favorites in the eastern conference and a worthy challenger to the Golden State Warriors.

"I mean, they don't know the plays yet", Lue, talking after Saturday's practice in Atlanta, said of the new players. "We've got some work to still do".

If you missed it, while the Celtics remained quiet at the trade deadline - adding free agent Greg Monroe - the Cavs did an on-the-fly overhaul. Just run some pick-and-rolls. He's the Batman, and we got to be all Robins. "Then just kind of go from there".

As the Cavaliers opened a 27-point lead midway through the fourth, the crowd began chanting "We want Paul Pierce!".

After being treated on the Cavs' bench, James checked back into the game with 8:58 left before the break. "Just to see and be with all the people who helped me on this journey, to get to this point to where I finally put a close on my career and leave a legacy here in Boston, it's just good to bring all those people in one room". There wasn't anything tactically to change, because there was nothing tactically to talk about at halftime.

The Cavs looked more athletic and were better defensively than they've been all season.

Kyrie Irving had 18 points on 7 of 14 shooting, while Marcus Morris was the only other Celtics starter in double figures with 17.

Pierce watched the game from a baseline seat, under the basket where the Celtics scored 42 points in the fourth quarter of Game Six of the finals to clinch their 17th National Basketball Association championship. "You hear these tales about Larry Bird - "Hey, I'm comin" down here fixin' to shoot the 3 right in your face.' Well, our generation that was Paul Pierce".

"We have one of the best players in the history of the game, I'm sure he's going to dictate the tempo and things like that", Hill said.
