PHILADELPHIA - Celtics captain Paul Pierce made a concerted effort Wednesday night to make up for his 2-for-9 shooting performance in Game 2. Pierce went 2 for 10 in the opening half but finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds in Boston’s 107-91 victory over the 76ers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
“I just wanted to be aggressive, regardless,’’ Pierce said. “Everything I do was going to be aggressive, and that’s it. When I’m getting limited to nine shots in a game, that’s not me.’’
