DC Sports Bog: Wizards vs. Hawks Game 5: Best and worst

Here are the best and worst moments from the Hawks’ 82-81 win over the Wizards in Game 5 of their second-round series. Best Truth: After playing more like The Lie for the first three quarters, in which he scored five points on 1-for-6 shooting, Paul Pierce reminded everyone once again why he’s here. After a Pierce turnover following a controversial no-call led to the Hawks taking an 80-78 lead, the 37-year-old Game 3 hero drained a three-pointer from the corner with 8.3 seconds to play.

The Truth will always be a Celtic

Paul Pierce coming through in the clutch serves as a poignant reminder of his time in Boston. For many years, Paul Pierce was the heart and soul of the Boston Celtics. He toiled and worked in Boston for many years, only making it to the playoffs once in 2002. Some of those years were incredibly difficult, featuring more than a couple losing seasons. However, his work in the community and on the court endeared him to fans of the organization. He was the captain, and the Celtics were unquestionably his team. As we all know, in the summer of '07, Danny Ainge brought in Ray Allen and Kevin...

DC Sports Bog: Paul Pierce asked ‘Why not us?’ Now that’s on Wizards’ T-shirts

This says it all for the Wizards pic.twitter.com/cjbOfVFADuEight months ago, before Paul Pierce had played a single game for the Wizards, he came out firing with inspirational talk. Via Jorge:Pierce’s first objective is to instill confidence. He scans the Eastern Conference landscape and doesn’t see a clear-cut favorite.

"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 ...

Pierce reignites old magic for Wizards

WASHINGTON — As he moves from the practice court toward the dressing room on this off day, Paul Pierce is smiling.And it is still more than 48 hours before his Game 3-winning jump shot would light up the District night and warm the heart of a Celtics Nation that still considers him one of its own — before he would see a familiar face in the hallway after said shot and say, “Just like old times, huh?”“I’ve never seen anyone smile so much,” said one Wizards employee on this lazy Thursday afternoon.

Lost in the hoopla over who was or wasn't in the game and the reasoning for it was an apparent miscommunication by the Hawks defensively on the final possession of Game 3 which led to Paul Pierce's buzzer beater. Kyle Korver began the possession matched up against Pierce, but an ill-timed switch by Dennis Schröder gave Pierce just enough room to bury the game winner and thus bury the...
