Paul Pierce led the Rondo-less Celtics to a big double OT win against the Miami Heat yesterday. Pierce had 17 points, 10 assists, and 13 rebounds…a Rondo type stat line that Pierce will probably have to keep up in order for the Celtics to contend this year now that we learn that Rondo is out for the year.
Apparently Doc Rivers was the only one who knew during the game that Rondo had been ruled out for the year, Pierce and his other teammates did not know. Unfortunately for The Truth, Doris Burke did not know that Pierce didn’t know about Rondo.
