Paul Pierce sounded pleased with the Boston Celtics' effort in their Game 4 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night to take a 3-1 lead in their first round 2012 NBA Playoffs series. After the game, he said the win was "definitely the best we've played in the series." You can hear more of his thoughts, as well as an update on his sore left knee, in the video below.
Pierce still wouldn't give a definitive answer whether he would be available for Game 5 after aggravating the knee injury he sustained while warming up before Sunday's game. He did say would have played had the game been closer in the fourth quarter. Pierce played just the first three and a half minutes of the second half before putting his sweats back on.
