The Hawks tweeted out a joking petition to ban game-winning bank shots after Wizards forward Paul Pierce hit one to beat them in Game 3.
In the final 14 seconds of Game 3, and the Wizards reeling after blowing all of a 21-point lead, Bradley Beal tossed the ball to Paul Pierce expecting to get it back.
Nobody likes to lose, especially not on a buzzer-beating bank shot. That's what happened to the Hawks in Game 3 against the Wizards.
Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer didn't officially throw in the towel with seven minutes remaining in Game 3 and Atlanta trailing by 18 points. He also didn't have his primary players on the court.
Invisible for most of Game 3 vs. the Atlanta Hawks, Paul Pierce made his presence felt when the Wizards were desperate for an answer.
