There have been some pretty high-profile people who have questioned the severity of Paul Pierce’s knee injury in the third quarter of Game 1 last night.
Lakers coach Phil Jackson seemed a bit blase about it again today, saying:
“Well, if I’m not mistaken, I think Willis Reed missed a whole half and three quarters almost of a game and literally had to have a shot, a horse shot, three or four of them in his thigh to come back out and play. Paul got carried off and was back on his feet in a minute. I don’t know if the angels visited him at halftime or in that time-out period that he had or not, but he didn’t even limp when he came back out on the floor. I don’t know what was going on there. Was Oral Roberts back there in their locker room?
But he certainly carried some energy back on the floor for them. ”
So what do you think?
