With less than 30 days to go before the start of the NBA 2014-2015 Season, two playoff contenders in the Eastern Conference already got it on the Hardcourt. Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls literally got engaged in a grind it out pre-season duel against Paul Pierce and the Washington Wizards.
Though it’s just a pre-season game, Paul Pierce showed the Bulls that he’s still a piercing agile player when he inflicted a hard foul on Jimmy Butler early in the first quarter. Pierce proceeded to look at Jimmy-B with eyes wide open.
Paul’s black-cat style ignited a shoving scene between him and Joakim Noah. It's climax was the eye-poke attempt coming from Paul. Good thing his fingers landed only on Joakim’s forehead, otherwise, we might see RED all over.
Through it all, Paul’s team got the upper hand in this match at the end of the final buzzer, 85-81.
