Paul Pierce Sends Brooklyn to the Second Round with Block In the Nike Air Legacy III

The Brooklyn Nets successfully rebounded from a 3-2 deficit to win their First Round series victory against the Toronto Raptors. The Nets held a late double figure lead and almost blew the pivotal Game Seven on the road in Toronto. With 6.2 seconds left and a one-point lead, the Nets had an impressive final defensive stand that culminated with a block by Paul Pierce on Raptors guard Kyle Lowry.

Pierce finished with just 10 points but he had the play of the game to make sure the Nets would advance to the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Miami Heat. Pierce wore a black and white colorway of his patented Air Legacy III in the victory against Toronto.
