I'll never get tired of watching @Paul Pierce make buzzer beaters(or tonight almost buzzer beaters) best wiz player in the series

Joel Brigham

The Paul Pierce shot that didn't count was more impressive than the Steph Curry 60-footer.

Joel Brigham

Just, for the record, Paul Pierce was the most entertaining player this postseason.

Mike Prada

Paul Pierce seemed crushed. Sounded like someone worried this was his last chance for a deep run.

Sean Highkin

What would make Knicks fans happier if it happened in the next couple weeks, winking the draft lottery or Paul Pierce retiring?

Devin Kharpertian

It would be oddly fitting if Paul Pierce ended his career on a game-tying shot, which would normally be impossible.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Paul Pierce says he has to talk to his family about his future. Says the emotions of hard playoff games have taken its toll over years

Chris Vivlamore

DeMarre Carroll on Paul Pierce final shot: "It went through but the basketball gods were on our side. They let us get through this one.”

David Aldridge

Paul Pierce says he's not sure at the moment if he'll return next yr. "A lot has to do with my family, talking to my wife, kids, my mother."

Chris Miller

Paul Pierce says doesn't know if he's coming back next season says he's getting old.

Royce Young

Bradley Beal on how playing with Paul Pierce affected him: "I think my trash talking increased a little bit."

Chris Sheridan

Props to @Paul Pierce for showing why NBA playoffs second to none. That said, Cavs in 6.

Brian Robb

DeMarre Carroll on what he was thinking when he saw Paul Pierce taking final shot: "I was about to cry."

Jaryd Wilson

"I almost had a heart attack, man." - @Teague0 on Paul Pierce's shot "The basketball Gods were on our side." - @DeMarre Carroll

Kevin Arnovitz

"I'm about to cry. Not again" -- DeMarre Carroll when Paul Pierce's shot went up. "I almost had a heart attack" -- Jeff Teague

Jay King

And with that, a 3-pointer a split-second too late, Paul Pierce was dropped from the playoffs. Hell of a run, though. masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Brian Robb

Paul Pierce's postseason numbers at age 37: 14.6 ppg, 48.4% FG, 52.3% 3pt FG on 6.3 attempts per game from downtown. (10 games)

Ben Golliver

Tommy Beer

Even if you hate Paul Pierce, you have to: *snaps thumb and forefinger* RESPECT

Kurt Helin

Paul Pierce’s game-tying shot doesn’t count, Hawks eliminate Wizards to advance to Eastern Conference Finals dlvr.it/9qsZwg

Mark Montieth

It's a game of inches and tenths of a second. And that's the truth.

Tas Melas

Just got many texts from Torontonians wishing Paul Pierce well in the offseason.

John Schuhmann

For the second straight year, an Eastern Conference playoff series was determined by Paul Pierce's fingertips.

Eddie Johnson

In the end for @Washington Wizards and @Paul Pierce the TRUTH hurts. Basket no good. @espn @SiriusXMNBA @NBA

Ryan Wolstat

Take away Paul Pierce and that Hawks-Wizards series would have been one of the least entertaining in years.

Chris Palmer

Still, I'd be OK with putting Paul Pierce in the Hall-of-Fame tonight.

Royce Young

Don't care that it didn't count, I'm forever going to cherish Paul Pierce accidentally Euro stepping into that 3.

Jay King

Paul Pierce kinda owned the first two rounds of the playoffs, somehow, at age 37.

Royce Young

Paul Pierce's ridiculous, potentially game-tying 3-pointer is waved off. Hawks win 94-91, they advance to play the Cavs.

Arash Markazi

The Truth hurts sometimes.

Bruno Altieri

Es increíble lo que metió Paul Pierce. Pero esta vez fuera de tiempo. Los Hawks avanzan a las Finales del Este.

Marc Stein

I miss Paul Pierce already. Most compelling player of these playoffs so far

Payal Doshi

Just the fact that Paul Pierce made the shot though! #TheTruth

Reggie Jackson

Shot unfortunately won't count but Paul Pierce is #thetruth fa real #clutchastheycome

Tim MacMahon

Hawks call series. Ball in Paul Pierce's as buzzer goes off.

Sherman Hamilton

You've got to be kidding me!!!!! It probably won't count but Paul Pierce has been clutch in these playoffs! #rtz #nbaplayoffs

Dave McMenamin

"This guy's unreal!" - great call on the Paul Pierce 3 by @DavePasch. But it doesn't look like this one will count.

Tony Jones

As Paul Pierce once said: Series

David Mayo

Oooooh. The Truth is it looks like it was in his hand.

Alan Hahn

He's the Truth, but the Ball Don't Lie.

Michael Grange

I'm concerned Paul Pierce's ego might rupture.

Ira Winderman

The Truth is too late.

Job De Leon

This Paul Pierce guy has potential, I think.

Paul Garcia

The Truth have it all. Have to see if it went out of his hands in time though.

Sean Grande

Lose the Truth? Consequences.

Kristina Leahy

How can you not love Paul Pierce?
