Ugh… Now Pierce Is Sick

According to the Herald.

CHICAGO — Eddie House went through the morning shootaround and pronounced himself fit for tonight’s game against the Bulls. He had missed Monday’s practice after twisting his left ankle in Milwaukee Sunday. …

Paul Pierce also went through this morning’s session, but he’s battling a sore throat. Pierce plans to spend the afternoon in his hotel room resting.

I'm gonna pull a Chuck here and blame his sore throat on Doc running him ragged over the past few weeks.

There… how's that for a 6 pint dose of irrational thought?


  1. How can anyone ever tell if Paul Pierce has a sore throat?
    The guy sounds like he gargled with battery acid in every interview.


  2. Fuck it, if thats what it takes to get the captain a day off, then so be it. I dont think were getting the first seed, so lets get our guys some rest now. That way we can get them all goin for 5-7 games and be firing on all cylinders come playoff time. Orlando doesnt scare me in the least bit, and it looks inevitable that were gonna have to steal one in cleveland.
    May the luck of the irish be on our side tonite!


  3. Wish we could see Giddens out there, at least a little. High energy guy, on both ends. Nobody knows what he can do though… though he did very well in DL.


  4. He won’t miss a game because of a sore throat. Maybe they want to rest him for the playoffs and saying he has a sore throat is an easy way out…I mean, c’mon, just listen to him, he has a sore throat since 1997.


  5. The C’s are going to be okay, they slump sometimes but always come back strong. And Paul’s voice sounds okay to me, none of us get to pick our voices.
