Joe Johnson Makes Paul Pierce Fall Down With a Low Crossover (VIDEO)

Down goes the Celtics forward.

It has not been a good season for Paul Pierce on the defensive end of the floor so far. He seems to fall down a lot when attempting to guard people who can handle the rock. After crumbling to the ground when checking Jameer Nelson a few days ago, last night, Paul Pierce became the victim of a series of low crossover dribbles by Joe Johnson.

    Pierce falls over more than my dog.

    He didnt really make Pierce fall. Joe Johnson looked like he lost control of the ball for a second and pierce made a move towards the floor to try to steal it and Johnson regained control…. Looked bad live tho, but when you see the replay it wasnt Johnson just mixing that sent him to the ground…

    Does Pierce drink before he hits the court or is his knees just bad? LOL

  • Mike E

    That’s why u play defense with your feet and not your hands. When u reach bad things happen.

    haha oh man that’s so sick that a 6’7″ guy can do that….the athletes in NBA amaze me

  • spit hot fiyah

    I have to admit, it was funny seeing them old knees buckle. Even in real time he was falling in slow motion.

    Paul Pierce plays classic “ol man defense” if all else fails fall on the ground and let your teammates pick up the slack.

    Watch that second replay JJ had control…

    It looks funny but he didn’t drop PP. He lost his handle and in regaining it did a series of low dribbles. PP lost his balance bending over fprfor the ball cuz he’s too old to bend his knees. Lol. People don’t fall forward from getting crossed over.


    At the 31 second mark, when the ball is in his right hand, he loses control the handle briefly, but regains it as Pierce starts to head towards the ball and the floor.


    No excuses at all… Actually a Net Fan… Know D-Will and a few of the guys on the team, so no excuses… Just stating what I see

  • fruizm

  • Yesse

    Who put tequila in his gatorade?

  • roscoe

    no… he is just a little overweight and unstable.

  • shockexchange

    JJ “baited him” and then he “faded him.”

    I can’t stop reading your comment and laughing my ass off.

  • Chukaz

    Funny how Pierce used to do this kind of stuff to people and now he’s the one getting shooked

  • rd

    nah he had control of that, u can tell he purposely brought it low

  • PZL

    This is miles ahead of every crossover video where either the defender or the ballhandler steps on the other guys foot, causing him to fall.
