WASHINGTON---Washington veteran Paul Pierce
hit a jump shot on the buzzer to give the Wizards
a 103--101 home win against Atlanta on Saturday
to take a 2--1 advantage in their NBA Eastern Con-
ference semifinal series.
In the day s other game, Memphis also went up
2--1 in its series with a home victory over a misfiring
Pierce, hemmed in by three defenders, got off a
fallaway, 20-foot jumper that went in off the back-
board as the Wizards escaped with a last-gasp win
after having given up a 21-point lead.
"Usually I like to save those type of shots for later
rounds," Pierce quipped.
Told that Dennis Schroder, one of the Hawks who
tried in vain to disrupt the game-winner, called it
"a lucky shot," the 37-year-old Pierce chuckled.
"I guess Schroder is going to say that, because
he s a little young. ... He hasn t been able to see it
over the last 17 years."
Pierce, who won a championship with Boston in
2008 is aware that time is running out on his career
and this may well be his last shot at a championship.
"I m still soaking it up," Pierce said, "because I
don t have too many more of these left."
Game 4 in the best-of-seven series is tonight at
It was the second straight day a bank shot at the
buzzer won an NBA playoff game. Derrick Rose hit
a 3 off the glass to give Chicago a 99--96 victory
over Cleveland on Friday.
Washington was missing John Wall, its All-Star
point guard, for a second consecutive game because
of a broken left hand, but it was the Hawks who
seemed out of sorts most of the evening.
The Wizards led by 21 with less than ten minutes
left before the visitors stormed back.
"We got comfortable," said Bradley Beal, who had
17 points and eight assists for Washington. "We
thought the game was over."
Yet Budenholzer s small lineup of little-used
reserves made things interesting.
A 17-0 run got the visitors within three points
with less than 3 1/2 minutes remaining, and Mike
Muscala s 3-pointer with 14.1 seconds left tied it.
But Pierce came through as the clock hit zero,
releasing the ball with about a second to go, then
falling to his back on the court with arms aloft.
"Took my time. Wanted to make sure I got the
shot off with no time on the clock," Pierce said.
"I ve been in those situations many times."
Pierce finished with 13 points, including three of
the Wizards 10 3s.
Memphis Zach Randolph scored 22 points to lead
the Grizzlies to a 99--89 win against Golden State.
Marc Gasol added 21 points and 15 rebounds while
Mike Conley and Courtney Lee both finished with
11 points for Memphis, which has looked much
improved with point guard Conley back in the lineup
for the past two games.
League MVP Stephen Curry finished with 23
points for Golden State but was 8 of 21 from the
field, including 2 of 10 outside the arc. Klay Thomp-
son had 20 points, and Harrison Barnes added 16.
For a second straight game, the Grizzlies made
the Warriors look nothing like the team that was
the NBA s best home or away during the regular
The Warriors missed seven straight 3s during one
stretch, several wide-open looks, and the Grizzlies
harassed them into a handful of ugly turnovers.
Game 4 is tonight in Memphis. (AP)
