Pierce hears the boo birds

Celtics forward Paul Pierce said he was surprised his team played badly enough to get booed repeatedly in a blowout loss to the Memphis Grizzlies tonight.

“Yeah it surprises me,” said Pierce. “You come out on your home court, get this kind of loss, and get booed by your home court. I haven’t been on a court where we’ve been booed … it’s been a couple times this year. It’s been about five or six years since I’ve seen that. We’re still 17 games over .500. All the fans want is a constant effort night in and night out. I think we gotta be more consistent with that regardless of if we win or lose.”
