Paul Pierce, Watch Ya Ankles!

Paul Pierce has had a rough week as far as playing defense goes. First, Jameer Nelson crosses him over, to the point that Pierce looked like he got shot and/or just broke both of his ankles. Of course, Nelson, true to form, misses the wide open jumper. Fortunately, Joe Johnson was taking notes.

The newly-acquired Net catches a pass on the wing, and does seriously the most impressive crossover I can remember seeing. Pierce commits the cardinal sin of defense: he reaches in when he's off-balance. From there, it's game over. Johnson crosses him up and actually makes the shot, thus making his play better.
