Big Al’s take

Celtics forward Al Jefferson said Paul Pierce played the way the team expected him to play against the Nets:

“Paul’s been out two months, and I don’t think anybody on this team — including him — expected he was going to come out tonight and have one of his All-Star nights,” said Jefferson. “I know how it is when you’ve been out a while and you try to come back and get it together. Just by him being on the court with us it put us on another level. When we do get him back and get his groove going I really believe we will be a better team.”
