Paul Pierce scored 25 points with four rebounds and two assists Wednesday versus the Bobcats. Pierce made nine of 11 from the field, including 5-5 from long range.

Over the last 7 games Pierce has returned top-50 value to his owners who stayed patient with the future HOF despite his clearly declining play. Now is the time to sell high and get a guy who can help you down the stretch as Pierce simply cannot keep up at this pace. Just don't expect the market to be "bullish" on Pierce as his decreasing production is common knowledge. ANALYST: Steve Perrotta
