Bravo, Doc.

The Los Angeles Clippers will start Paul Pierce on Sunday in what will almost certainly be his final game in Boston, where he spent 15 seasons as a Celtic. It's a wonderful gesture by fellow ex-Celtic Doc Rivers.

Pierce arrived at TD Garden hours earlier dressed head-to-toe in New England Patriots gear. He's also changed NBA jerseys throughout his career - going to Washington, Brooklyn, and Los Angeles - but Pierce's heart never left Boston.
