Paul Pierce has already missed one game because of a bruised heel and it's sounding like he'll miss a second, this one against the Heat. Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters Tuesday at Boston's shootaround he didn't believe Pierce would be ready to go.

"He worked out (Monday), went pretty well," Rivers said. "He didn't get as sore, so that's a good sign. He's not going to play tonight -- I doubt it, at least."

Pierce sat out Sunday's opener against the Knicks. He did participate in Boston's shootaround though and is just listed as doubtful.

If Pierce doesn't play, Sasha Pavlovic is again expected to start in his place. In Sunday's game versus the Knicks, Pavlovic went scoreless.

The main thing they have in common with the Mavs, is their core is OLD.  The compressed schedule will take a toll on Ray, Paul, and KG.  Luckily for the Celts, Rondo has young legs.  Easier to bounce back from 3 games in 4 nights. 

I don't see either either standing up to the Heat, Bulls, Thunder this season.
