Chris Paul made sure NBA veteran Paul Pierce knew that his career wasn’t ending on the road in Utah during Game 6 of the team’s Western Conference playoff series on Friday night.
Pierce — who has been in the league for 18 years — deserved better than that, and CP3 made sure he knew during Friday’s game in Salt Lake City, which probably fired the team up.
“I looked over at ‘Truth’ [Pierce] during one of them timeouts, and I said, ‘You’re not ending your career in Utah,'” Paul told reporters after the 98-93 win. It was CP3’s way of guaranteeing a Game 7, and he delivered on his promise.
