Paul Pierce’s late three in Game 5, which put his Wizards up 81-80 over the Hawks with less than 10 seconds to play, was wasted by Nene’s inability to box out and prevent Al Horford’s game-winning layup. That’s a shame, because if the Wizards had managed to win, Pierce would have reached a new high point on his journey to becoming one of the best, smuggest trash-talkers in the league.

That’s some incredibly cold shit to drop on an opponent after hitting a shot like that, and I bet Pierce felt great about it. He should really give Nene a dead arm today.
