Celtics’ Paul Pierce: ‘It’s a long series’
The Celtics, beaten to every inch of paint and every loose ball by the breathtaking skill of (LeBron) James and (Dwyane) Wade, were telling themselves Monday night that it was the latter. The evidence says otherwise.
“It’s a long series,” the Celtics’ Paul Pierce was saying in the visiting locker room, after the Heat easily took a 1-0 series lead with a 93-79 victory. But it will be a short series if the Celtics don’t find an answer to the dominance and unfair brilliance of James and Wade, the stars who decided that if James couldn’t beat Boston, they’d team up and emulate them.
