At practice today, as always super-sleuth Chris Forsberg of ESPNBoston brought us the important news, via his twitter account:
Doc says Pierce and Daniels both remain 50/50 for tomorrow.
This tweet wouldn’t be all that exciting if it wasn’t followed shortly by news that Pierce practiced along with these tweets:
Marquis Daniels deems himself ready to go if Doc Rivers green-lights him Sunday.
Paul Pierce says he’s ready to play tomorrow. If decision is his, he’ll go.
Doc has talked all season long about how the long-term health of his players is his biggest focus, but if both Daniels and Pierce are saying they are ready to play Sunday against the Orlando Magic, I can’t believe that Doc will hold them out. I’m looking forward to Pierce’s and Daniels’ returns, and to a great game on Sunday.
What a great sports day. Boston Celtics vs. Orlando Magic at 2:30 ET and then Colts vs. Saints in the Super Bowl at 6:30 ET. A day filled with large quantities of food (preferably pizza and wings), beer, and great sports. The American Way.
