Paul Pierce Was Mic’d Up for His Dagger Against the Raptors in Game 1 [Video]

Paul Pierce has been making opponents weep and draining that trademark step-back jumper for 15 years now. The NBA fortunately had him mic’d up for yesterday’s upset win against the Toronto Raptors, and the “dinosaur” responded to the bucket by yelling, “THAT’S WHY THEY GOT ME HERE!”

This is some of the other audio that was captured in the game:

Nets, Warriors & Hawks All Pull Upsets in Their Playoff Openers

BROOKLYN NETS 94 vs TORONTO RAPTORS 87 (Game 1)

The Toronto Raptors were trying to send a message that they have been overlooked all season, but the experience of the Brooklyn Nets helped the road team win Game 1, 94-87.

Paul Pierce came through with big shot after big shot for the Nets, scoring nine of his 15 points in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter.

Shaun Livingston scored 10 points and Kevin Garnett had five as the Nets won despite making 4 of 24 3-pointers.

If the Raptors cannot earn a win in Game 2, this series would pretty much be over, as the series heads back to Brooklyn for Games 3 and 4.

The Golden State Warriors stole home-court advantage from the rival Clippers on Saturday in Los Angeles, turning up the defensive pressure late en route to a pivotal 109-105 victory in Game 1 of the two teams’ Western Conference first-round playoff series.

Stephen Curry was held mostly in check in 45 minutes of action, scoring 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting from the field.

Chris Paul led the Clippers with 28 points and eight assists but turned the ball over with 18 seconds to play and missed two key free throws with L.A. trailing by three points in the waning moments.

Game 2 is Monday night at Staples Center.

Toronto Sun Headline: “Raptors vs. Dinosaurs” With a Picture of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett

raptors-nets-dinosaurs-toronto-sun

The NBA Playoffs tip-off today, thus beginning the best time of the year. The Toronto Raptors host the Brooklyn Nets at 12:30. To help get things going, the Toronto Sun used this headline. The line at the bottom – ‘Garnett & Pierce are so old the Raptor had to ask his dad about them” – is particularly cruel, yet very funny. According to Basketball-Reference, the average age of this season’s Toronto Raptors is 25.6 while the DinoNets are 30.
