39-year old Paul Pierce wasn’t the only person who needed CPR after watching the Clippers double OT loss to the Nets on Tuesday. Between the joy of watching CP3 resuscitate Paul Pierce after a miss dunk, the confusion of watching Sean Kilpatrick score 20 points in the 4th quarter, the excitement of watching Chris Paul force OT, the anger of watching Doc Rivers get ejected in OT before Jamal Crawford forced a double OT, the wild game had all viewers feeling like they were about to have a heart attack.
“Anybody in the league knows, they say, you mess with the game and like you said, the basketball gods got us,” said Paul, who finished with 26 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds.
