Default Re: Sixers step up and beat Celtics to tie 2nd round 1-1

Boston Globe:

Meanwhile, Pierce may not be an offensive factor in this series. Iguodala is one of the game’s top defenders and against a wobbly Pierce, he is even more effective. The Celtics tried to work Pierce into the offense down the stretch and he couldn’t deliver. He was 0-for-4 shooting with 2 points in the second half, when the Celtics only needed one final push to prevail.

“[They] are who we thought they are,’’ Pierce said, channeling his inner Dennis Green. “They are a tough defensive team, they grind it out defensively, they try the fast break and they’re not going to give in. They have a good coach over there who installs his mentality into his players so nothing is surprising, they are what we expected them to be.’’
