It was only a few days ago that Paul Pierce looked like he got snipered from the rafters by a pretty minor fake by Orlando’s Jameer Nelson. And it still cracks me up to watch it. Well, Joe Johnson of the Nets did Paul pretty dirty last night in Boston. Johnson showed off some slick handles near the three point line that left Pierce grasping for air before finally losing his balance.
Unlike Nelson the other day, Johnson finished the play with a nice jumper to add the insult to the near injury. The game also featured a pretty good brawl between Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries, with both getting ejected because of it. That ended Rondo’s streak of game with double digit assists at 37. Rondo stays tied for the second longest such streak in NBA history.
