Pierce leads troops

Paul Pierce did not talk to the medical staff today about possibly shutting it down for the rest of the season, according to Celtics coach Doc Rivers.

“Not that I know of,” said Rivers. “I don’t think it’s anything.”

Rivers said he has been pleased with the attitude of his captain of late.

“Paul’s having a lot of fun right now,” said Rivers. “And it’s nice. Obviously it’s all the guys, because with all the injuries he’s the only vet left standing. But I think he’s really enjoying his role right now with the team. It’s really neat to watch. He’s kind of overseeing the one-on-one games before and after practices. And the guy most of his attention is on is Gerald. And so I really like the relationship and what’s going on with this team in that aspect.”
