Paul Pierce's final seconds of Game 5 were hilarious and awful

Paul Pierce hit a go-ahead three with less than nine seconds left on Thursday. That was good! Everything immediately following that was awkward and bad.

1. Paul Pierce looks at the Hawks bench, calls "series."

2. Paul Pierce truck sticks John Wall, who returned to the court in Game 5 with one hand.

3. Paul Pierce leaves the entire Wizards organization hanging.

4. And, well, you know how the game ended ...

Paul Pierce is awesome! It's just that this stuff is legendary when he wins, and kinda corny when he doesn't.
