The Atlanta Hawks defeated the Washington Wizards 94-91 in dramatic fashion to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. They will play the Cleveland Cavaliers. With the clock winding down and Washington needing a 3-pointer to tie the game, they turned to Paul Pierce and he delivered. He nailed a fade away 3 in the corner and was called good on the floor to tie the game as the clock expired. After further review, it was called no good. Check out the shot and judge for yourself. It appears that it was clearly still in his hands and with that the game and series was over.
The Hawks will now meet a team they took the season series from. The #1 seed will face the #2 seed in the East for a chance to advance to the NBA Finals. Their Cinderella story continues.
