Paul Pierce continued to struggle on Friday, shooting 4-of-13 from the field for 12 points with six rebounds, four assists and five turnovers in 40 minutes vs. Atlanta.
He shot just 32.9 percent from the field in his last five games and it was the third time in during that stretch in which he failed to make a 3-pointer. Prior to this cold streak, Pierce only had five games without a three in the first 38 games of the season. While he does look like he's fatigued and taking some lazy shots, his value can't get much lower than right now. The Truth will look to turn it around against Miami on Sunday.
