NEWPORT, R.I. -- While exchanging jokes with his teammates and icing his knee, Celtics guard Paul Pierce reflected on the first day of the Celtics' potential road to the championship.

“It is like first day of school," said Pierce. "You’re excited. You got your new lunch pail, new clothes, showing off. It’s the same thing. You come out here you got new teammates you’re excited about to get back on the court and show it off. It was good to see these guys fit in real well. Marquis (Daniels) looked good. Rasheed (Wallace) looked good, and these guys fit into what we’re trying to do because they’re such selfless players. With the way our system is built, they are going to be able to thrive.”
