Paul Pierce called 'series' after nailing three-pointer, immediately loses game. Pierce made a game-winning dagger in Game 3 of the Washington Wizards’ playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks. He went on to brick the game-winning shot in Game 4. In Game 5, Pierce had the opportunity to put the Wizards up by one with mere seconds remaining, and he did. Up 81-80 with 8.3 seconds to play, Pierce turned to the Hawks bench and uttered a phrase so bold. For The Win
Two days after hitting a buzzer-beater to win Game 3, Washington's Paul Pierce missed a 3-point attempt that would have tied the score coming out of a timeout with 9.5 seconds left. "Thought I got a great look," Pierce said. Said Bradley Beal, who scored a career playoff-high 34 points for the Wizards: "I thought it was going in. … That open one's always the hardest one to make." USA Today Sports
Pierce laughs at the picks the Nets surrendered (three first-rounders and a Celts’ right to swap opening round places in 2017). Less than two years later, Garnett and Terry had been traded and Pierce had left as a free agent. “I’m not even thinking about their situation,” said the 10-time All-Star. “I put all that behind me now. It’s all about where I am now. They’ve got to deal with that.” Boston Herald
"Obviously I wish I could have just finished up in Boston, but who knows if I’d even be playing still?” Pierce said. “If I’d stayed in Boston, that next year (2013-14) could have been my last, the end of that last contract. You know I wanted to finish my career there, but I understand in this day and time how much of a business it is. It was definitely a tough year for me down there in Brooklyn. “I definitely can understand what Danny did from a business aspect. They’re transitioning into a new generation, a new era, and they’re trying to build for the future.” Boston Herald
