Pierce Gets Clutch Block, Brooklyn Advances
Throughout his illustrious career, PaulPierce has had a penchant for draining big shots. On Sunday afternoon, however, Pierce blocked a potential big shot. The Truth came up with a clutch defensive play when he swatted Kyle Lowry’s shot in the lane to lead the sixth-seed BrooklynNets to a 104-103 victory over the (3) Toronto Raptors in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. The Nets will now face LeBron James and the two-time defending champion MiamiHeat in the semifinals, beginning Tuesday night.
