Paul Pierce on Losses: The World’s Not Coming to an End

Celtics fans need not join any doomsday cults or fill out a change-of-address card for the afterlife.

“We have six losses,” Paul Pierce [stats] said. “I mean, the world’s not coming to an end.”

For those immersed in Green, however, the skies are rather gray and threatening these days. Four of those six losses to which Pierce referred have come in the past six games.

It wasn’t all that long ago the Celtics [team stats] were off to one of the best starts in league history and winking with purpose at the Chicago Bulls’ record for most wins in a season. But after losing 4-of-5 on the road, the Shamrocks are shaking their head at 72 victories.
