Paul Pierce On Hawks: "We Still Feel We're the Better Team"

The Celtics only have 10 losses this season and three of them are against the Atlanta Hawks.

Paul Pierce and Kendrick Perkins were on the floor for the entire fourth quarter and couldn’t stop the Atlanta Hawks.

Yet after the game, Paul Pierce had the balls to say, “We still feel we’re the better team.” Wow. Real classy, Paul. Talking like a real leader.

To add fuel to the fire, Kendrick Perkins said the following after the game, “I don’t think anyone on this team fears them. They look at us like a rival, but I don’t think we look at them as a rivalry team.”

The Atlanta Hawks came back from 14 points down in the third quarter last night and they are now just 2.5 games behind the Celtics in the Eastern Conference.

Yet certain players on the Celtics dont recognize them as an opponent worth playing hard against. Im probably going to get ripped for saying this, but the Celtics dont have the heart of a championship team (eerily reminds you of the Colts, huh?).

The next Celtics ass whipping will be January 29th when these two teams face each other again in Atlanta.

Ill be at the Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry The Cable Guy comedy show at the Garden that night. Should be more entertaining.
