Doc on Pierce: 'He was a monster'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers praised his captain Paul Pierce for carrying a monumental load in Boston's 87-80 win over the Hawks in Game 2 Tuesday night in Atlanta. Pierce scored 36 points and hauled down 14 rebounds in 44 minutes to pick up the slack for the suspended Rajon Rondo. 

"He was a monster," Rivers said of Pierce. "He was great. His leadership, his intensity. In the third, I thought he was getting tired. We had him scoring and guarding Joe Johnson, and I just thought that was too much of a load for us to win the game at the end of the game. That's why we went smaller. So, Marquis and [Pietrus] could guard him, and Paul could kind of get rest defensively so he would have some energy offensively. But his leadership was absolutely terrific."

Rivers credited the team with picking up the slack for the suspended Rondo early on. Pierce scored Boston's first nine points and hit his first four shots. 

"I told...

Pierce: 'I felt I had to do everything'

Paul Pierce said after the Game 1 loss to the Hawks that for the Celtics to win, he had to play better. Without the suspended Rajon Rondo, he was not just better Tuesday night in a Game 2 win over the Hawks, he was spectacular. The Celtics captain scored 36 points, hauled down 14 rebounds in 44 minutes and played defense on Joe Johnson to help the Celtics even the series, 1-1, and earn home court advantage the rest of the way. 

"I felt I had to do everything," Pierce said with a laugh postgame. "With Rondo being out, a lot of responsiblity falls on me with play-making, scoring, rebounding. But that's all part of it. A number of guys stepped up tonight, not only myself. I thought we played terrific defense throughout. We rebounded the ball and got off to a great start, which was important. 

"It was a good team win tonight. Everybody who played tonight, really contributed, from Ryan Hollins, Sasha Pavlovic, Mickael...

Doubront struggles as A's top Red Sox

The Red Sox once again failed to creep over .500, dropping a 5-3 decision to the A's, at a rainy Fenway Park Tuesday night.

Taking the loss was Sox' starter Felix Doubront, who has a 5.19 ERA after giving up five runs on six hits over four innings. The lefty, who threw 94 pitches (58 strikes), did strike out eight while walking one.

Doubront's downfall came in the fourth inning, when he gave up four runs on 30 pitches. He also threw 30 pitches in the first inning, which Oakland used to get out to a 1-0 lead on Yoenis Cespedes' RBI single.

The Sox managed to get the tying run to first in the ninth inning after Mike Aviles' drove in a pair with a one-out, two RBI single against A's reliever Grant Balfour. But a Lars Anderson strikeout and Dustin Pedroia ground out to second ended the host's threat.

The Red Sox had little success against Oakland starting pitcher Jarrod Parker, whose only surrendered run came on a David Ortiz ground out...

Suspended belief: Pierce leads Game 2 win

Playing without the suspended Rajon Rondo after his chest bump with official Marc Davis, Paul Pierce scored 36 and keyed an 11-2 run in the fourth quarter to lead the Celtics to a 87-80 win over the Hawks in Game 2 Tuesday night at Philips Arena. Pierce also finished with 14 rebounds while Kevin Garnett added 15 points and 12 rebounds. Avery Bradley had 14 points and just one turnover in 42 minutes while playing point guard in Rondo's absence. The Eastern Conference quarterfinal series is tied, 1-1. 

Pierce came out red-hot and intent on picking up the early scoring slack for Rondo. He hit his first four shots from the field and scored Boston's first nine points as the Celtics jumped out to a 9-4 lead. The Celtics also did a much better job Tuesday of getting back on transition defense, keeping the Hawks from getting easy baskets the way they did in Game 1 Sunday night. The Celtics managed a 24-24 tie after one quarter as Pierce led the way with 13...

Doc on Allen: 'We just don't know what to do'

ATLANTA -- Ray Allen is out for Game 2 of the Celtics' playoff series with the Hawks and the frustration is growing. Coach Doc Rivers said that Allen looked good in workouts on Monday and there was a feeling that Allen would be able to play, but things got worse on Tuesday.

"It’s frustrating honestly," Rivers said. I"t’s frustrating for him far more than us, let’s just make that clear. We just don’t know what to do. He looked great yesterday off the court running and shooting, so we were almost positive. Then today, he couldn’t walk much. He couldn’t even do his shooting before the game. We’re kind of lost at what to do, so we’re just going to keep seeing what we can do."

Mickael Pietrus will start at the off guard position with Allen out and Avery Bradley replacing Rajon Rondo, who is serving a one-game suspension for bumping official Marc Davis late in Game 1. Allen hasn't been...
