Paul Pierce walks off court with 2.2 seconds left in Game 2 (Video)

Paul Pierce fouled out of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals in the final minute of regulation, and he also made an early exit from the game in the final seconds of overtime.

The Celtics forward was shown by ESPN cameras leaving the floor and walking to the locker room with 2.2 seconds left in the game. Our guess is that he began making his exit when his team was down 114-108 with a few seconds left before Rajon Rondo improbably made another three pointer to make it 114-111.

Even if a comeback was unlikely at that point, players should always try their best, and guys on the bench should always support their teammates. About the only excuse I could imagine for Pierce is if he had to get treatment or go to the bathroom or something, but even in that case he should be able to wait a minute for the game to finish.

    A non story. Is this the same Larry Brown who never won a ring and had a mediocre winning percentage in the NBA? Not to mention what an eccentric character he is. Maybe Pierce had an upset stomach and had to take care of business? Or would you rather he vommit on the floor, or worse?

    If this would have been Lebron, it would have been about 8,000 comments on here burning him up about it. They would have had an Outside The Lines show about it…..LOL, Like the previous post…..”nothing to see here people, keep it moving”

     Larry, instead of talking about Pierce walking off the court with 2.2 secs left in the game and trying to make it sound like he left his team.  Why don’t you report about how terrible the officiating was and why he fouled out of the game.  Do you think the one sided refs had anything to do with it?  James to the foul line 24 times, since he couldn’t make a shot (7/24). and he ends with 34 points.  Hum, looks like Miami needed the help AGAIN!

    Stern wants Lebron to be the new star in the NBA and will do anything to make this happen.
    The officiating in this series is the worst, and the refs are so one sided in their calls. It is very obivious that they want the Heat to win the title and will do anything to make this happen.

    Stern is the major problem in the NBA, and the league needs another comissioner.

    The NBA is going to lose it standing in the the sports world, by bad officiating and favoring one team over another. what happen to a clean game?  This Stern’s doing, and he also had a hand in the lottery.  This needs to be addressed at the owners meeting, and Stern needs to be removed by the owners ASAP!!   honest and fair play is needed in this sport, we need better refs calling games.  There should be a panel to view games and refs calls, and action should be taken to fire any refs for questionable calls against a certain teams because he doesn’t like them.  In championship or any playoff games there should be a panel at these games to view refs behavior and questionable calls and that ref be removed from the game and replaced.

    This is billion dollar sport, and the fans are the one ‘s paying for these games and players salary.
    We deserve better then this!!  If my team loses because the other team played better, I can live with that, but if the refs are the one’s deciding the outcome that is not right.  And Stern you are the NBA comissioner, not GOD!! keep you fat ass out the sport, and do you job in making sure that there is fair play!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
