Hearing Paul pierce may have tonight off for rest— greg dickerson (@gdickerson_csn) March 12, 2013
With the neck stinger and a back-to-back against the Raptors looming tomorrow night, it makes sense for Doc to sit the Captain tonight against the Bobcats. However, let's just remember the last time Boston visited Charlotte: the C's were riding a seven-game win streak when the Bobcats handed them their first post-Rondo injury loss. A. Sherrod Blakely suggests that this might be an opportunity to work recently re-signed White and Randolph into the rotation, but the next three games are must win games. With Brooklyn and New York in reach, this may not be the best time to pull a Popovich.
