May 3: Playoffs Round 2, Celtics at Heat Game 2
The AP reports: Paul Pierce is from Los Angeles, so he knows a thing or do about Hollywood. And he knows he’ll have to act better if the Boston Celtics are going to avoid getting into a quick two-game hole in their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Miami Heat. A day after getting ejected from Boston’s Game 1 loss, Pierce acknowledged that his actions were “selfish” and that he needed to do a better job keeping his composure. Nonetheless, he still believes that he was more victim than aggressor during the two plays in which he got technical fouls that sent him to the locker room with 7 minutes left in Miami’s 99-90 win. Game 2 is Tuesday, and Pierce isn’t sure if the physicality both teams offered Sunday would carry over.
