Pierce will play good d, will grab 5 rebounds, and function as the offense's focus. I'd rate Garnett as more important to an individual win. But that 10-game stretch, over which the Cs were a good 7-2, is a little over an eighth of the season so far, which is enough to overcome Garnett's slight edge in per game value. It's certainly no reason to blame Garnett, he didn't want to hurt his abdomen, but it happened.
hey, somebody made a good point in favor of pierce! we can always count on real men to actually put forth an argument.
