WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) - Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce is
ready to go for Game 2 of the NBA finals against the Los Angeles
Pierce took part in Sunday morning's shootaround at the team's
practice facility and showed no ill-effects of the right knee
sprain that sent him to the locker room in a wheelchair during Game
Pierce was wearing a white sleeve over his knee as he played
pickup with Sam Cassell at the end of practice. Coach Doc Rivers
says Pierce will be fine.
The news isn't so certain on center Kendrick Perkins. He sat out
the shootaround and will be a game-time decision for Game 2 because
of a high ankle sprain.
