Even as the Celtics put a premium on resting bodies down the stretch, captain Paul Pierce is hardly taking it easy. And despite the losses, Boston's confidence isn't wavering:

A sampling of the featured stories:

* MACMULLAN: CAPTAIN CARRYING THE LOAD: [Celtics coach Doc] Rivers said he's not concerned that Pierce is becoming discouraged by the mounting losses. "He knows that when we have Kevin, we can beat anybody," the coach declared. In the meantime, it is Pierce's load to bear to hold up what's left of his depleted basketball team. He acknowledged as much on Sunday night, lamenting the ever-changing lineups, but adding, "We've just got to get through it."

* C'S CONFIDENCE NOT WAVERING: In one of the night’s only encouraging sequences for the visitors, the Celtics were downright defiant while affirming that they like their chances against anybody in the East, including New York. “We like how we match up with the Knicks,” captain Paul Pierce said. “We like how we match up with Miami. We like how we match up with pretty much anybody in the East.”
