Pierce comments in his post game interview that his back is a little sore after being on the receiving end of what looked like an offensive foul by LeBron in the 3rd qtr. Pierce actually left the game briefly, but returned only to drop 11 in the 4th qtr.
"I knew when I got up and started walking around on the court, the back started to spasm a little bit. I had the chance to go to the back, took a few Advils, and put some heat on it and it loosened up a little bit. It was pretty good for the rest of the game, but it's going to be a little sore [Tuesday] and [Wednesday]."
