Pierce May Play - Team May Win

Two things might happen tonight for the first time in a long time.  Pierce may play and the Celtics might actually win.

njn.gifI was actually going to say that tonight is a great chance for a win even before I heard about Pierce.  In fact, if his minutes are as limited as Doc has indicated (15 minutes a game and no more than 3 minutes without a break), he might not have a whole lot of direct impact on the game.  Then again, him being in the lineup might be just enough of an emotional lift to give the team some more confidence and drive.  Regardless, the Nets are undermanned (Richard Jefferson and Kristic are both out for a long time) and struggling (3-7 in their last 10).
