Re: Paul Pierce w/o rondo vs Pierce w/ Rondo
The beauty of Pierce is that he does not need the ball in his hands often to be effective. He can work as a point forward like he's been for the games which Rondo were out for, or he can be another facilitator on offense when Rondo plays by either scoring or helping Rondo to make plays as well. You must remember Paul is 34 years old. He cant keep up with this amazing production for long. Which is why Rondo is so important because he makes it easy for the big three or any player on the team to score with his great playmaking and passing ability.
The reason why we struggled earlier was probably due to the newcomers learning our system and Paul, who was and is our best scorer, had lacklustre performances as he tried to shake off his heel injury.
So dont worry too much man
