WALTHAM — Paul Pierce said today he was not the author of a Tweet message in which he allegedly wrote “Anybody got a broom?” following the Celtics’ 95-92 Game 2 victory in Orlando.
“It wasn’t me on that,” Pierce said. “I guess somebody said that I said, `Break out the brooms?’ I’m not going to say that on the Tweet. I think that’s pretty unprofessional. I’ll talk trash on the court and say things on the court that I wouldn’t say here.”
Pierce, who was sporting a pair of nasty scratches over his left brow, remnants of the hard flagrant foul he absorbed from Dwight Howard, said he had no problem with the league not issuing a suspension on the Magic’s center.
“My reaction to him not being suspended is a good reaction,” Pierce said. referring to the Flagrant 1 call against Howard with 4:16 left in the second quarter of Tuesday night’s game at Amway Arena. “We want their team’s best. In order to be the best, you want to beat their best. When they have Dwight Howard, they’re a good team and we want their best team on the floor.”
