On Sunday, (Paul) Pierce, who said last fall that he would retire following this season, plays his final game at TD Garden when the Los Angeles Clippers make their lone visit to Boston this season (ABC, 2 p.m.)

Emotions? Yeah, there will be plenty of those, even if Pierce isn’t certain exactly how they will manifest themselves.

“There’s no preparation for something like this,” Pierce said. “I can’t even picture it and how it’s going to be. I can’t even imagine how it’s going to be. I know it’s going to be emotional. I don’t know what kind of emotion is going to come out, whether it’s a smile or a tear or what. It’s something that you just can’t prepare for.”
