Two days on from his heroic 'I Called Game' buzzer-beater, Paul Pierce tried to do it again!

The NBA Playoffs are getting serious.

IF YOU’VE EVEN got a passing interest in the NBA Playoffs, you’ll know that last weekend was the weekend of the buzzer-beater.

It started with this worldy by Derrick Rose on Friday night:

And on Sunday, LeBron James showed that he wouldn’t be overshadowed as he levelled the Cleveland Cavaliers-Chicago Bulls series at two games apiece:

Sandwiched in between them on Saturday night was this sensational winner by Paul Pierce of the Washington Wizards:

Pierce made a magic moment even better in his post-game interview when he delivered the classic line “I Called Game”:

Pierce’s Wizards and the Atlanta Hawks met again on Monday night for Game 4, and Washington trailed by 104-101 with 9.5 seconds on the clock.

The stage was set for more heroics. Pierce had a wide-open look and all the time in the world to land the three-pointer that would have levelled the game but slightly overcooked his jumper and watched as it came back off the rim.

In Monday night’s other game, Steph Curry scored 33 points as the Golden State Warriors levelled their series with the Memphis Grizzlies at 2-2.
