Boston Celtics captain Paul Pierce expressed regret for letting his teammates down by the ejection gotten in the final period of Sunday’s 99-90 loss defeat to the Miami Heat in one of the Eastern Conference semifinal series. “I was more frustrated in letting my teammates down,” Pierce said. Vegas odds.

Paul “The Truth” Pierce earned two double technical fouls in a span of nearly one minute, consequential in his automatic ejection with seven minutes left in Sunday’s defeat.

In the first play in which Pierce got a tech, he and Miami’s James Jones bumped in the air. Paul made a pump-fake and, to prevent a shot attempt, Jones came down hard around Pierce’s neck. Pierce took resentment and smashed his face angrily against J.J. after the whistle. Betting lines.

Just 59 seconds later, Pierce drew a foul call on Dwyane Wade. The Heat’s star crashed into a Pierce’s screen which was set to try to free Ray Allen in the corner. Pierce jawed at Wade and referee Ed Malloy assigned another set of technicals while signaling for Pierce’s ejection.

“I probably overreacted,” said Pierce. “I thought I was fouled excessively on both plays actually.”

Celt’s coach, Doc Rivers commented on Shaquille O’Neal’s status for Tuesday’s Game 2, saying that Shaq’s ability to get on the court Tuesday likely rests on his pain level after Monday’s practice.

But if O’Neal’s body does react well to Monday’s training, and if the Celtics make a decision to pass by the three off-days of rest that anticipate Saturday’s Game 3, the “Big Shamrock” could very well be back on the court Tuesday night at American Airlines Arena for Game 2. Sports scores.
