Pierce ‘a little sore’

Paul Pierce left the floor during the third quarter of tonight’s game after taking a hard fall while guarding LeBron James. Pierce went to the locker room, was diagnosed with a bruised back, and returned to the game early in the fourth quarter.

“I’m a little sore right now,” Pierce said in his postgame press conference. ” Had a chance to go to the back, took a few Advils, put some heat on it. It’s a little sore right now and I know it’s going to be sore tonight and tomorrow.”

The Celtics have a game in Cleveland tomorrow night.
