Paul Pierce scored a season-high 33 points on 10 of 16 shooting, including 7-for-10 from the long line, to go with six rebounds, two assists, a steal, and a block in the one point loss to the Raptors.
Pierce overcame a sore shoulder to go on to have his best game of the season. The seven 3-pointers were also season-high for The Truth.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Update: Nene (calf) will not play Saturday.
The Wizards are thin in the forecourt, now with Hilario out as well as Kris Humphries. He was a game-time decision earlier, but the pre-game shootaround appear to have shown his lack of capacity to play on Saturday. Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden will be asked to carry on in place of the injured Wizards. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
