Celtics captain Paul Pierce played less than 16 minutes in the Celtics' 112-94 win over Orlando in the second game of their second-round playoff series Wednesday night. But Pierce appreciated the view from the bench.
"That was the game plan -- hack away at Paul and let Eddie House come in and score 30," Pierce said jokingly after a short practice today. "Great game plan. I always like to be out there playing, but, hey, the way we played and the way we won, it's good to see my teamates step up and me just sit and watch. It's been a while since I played 15 minutes in a game and it was great to watch."
