If Rivers is smart he will let Pietrus handle Wade at the start of the second quarter if not earlier. Ray Allen is too slow now with the injury and Rondo is way too weak to handle Wade down low. Even experimenting with that would be a disaster.
Pietrus is their only hope off the bench. Usually he would come in and defend Lebron to give Pierce some rest but I don't see PP getting much rest in this series with Bradley out. There defensive rotation is fukked.
