Paul Pierce: Celtics Are Still the Best Team in the NBA

“You can’t cry over spilled milk,” Paul Pierce [stats] said. “Unfortunately we didn’t have the big fella for this run, so hopefully the main thing right now for him is to get healthy, keep the core together and bring him back next year and see what happens. Hopefully we can stay healthy for next year. See what happens.

“We believe that we are the best team in the NBA, still,” he said. “Before the season, everyone was asking if we would repeat, and I said yes, but only if we are healthy. In the NBA injuries happen, it (stinks), but you have to deal with it.”
