Clippers’ Rivers Trying Tactics to ‘Preserve’ Paul Pierce


(Doc) Rivers and (Paul) Pierce are teaming up for a competition against a foe that’s undefeated – aging. And, honestly, they don’t know how they’re doing.

“I’ve never had to do this with Paul,” Rivers said before Sunday’s game. “And I don’t know if we’re doing it the right way or not.”

The plan – a combination of limited minutes and days off – hasn’t netted great results.

“I’m just trying to do the best with him so we can preserve him.”
