Pierce sits out for personal reasons
Celtics captain Paul Pierce sat out Monday night’s 110-100 loss to the Timberwolves at the Target Center because of “personal reasons,” the team announced.
Pierce did not make the trip; he returned to Boston after the Celtics played Sunday night in New York.
Coach Doc Rivers wouldn’t elaborate on why Pierce missed the game except to say that it wasn’t for any negative reasons, such as an injury.
