The Player of the game vs the Hornets was Paul Pierce. Others played well including a double double from KG and almost double double from Perk, but Pierce stood out with 28 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals. He also played 43 minutes in the second of back to back games. One of the tough things about this team is that you never know which player is going to go off and beat you. Last night, it was Paul Pierce.
