Dennis Schroder calls Paul Pierce’s game-winner ‘a lucky shot’



Derrick Rose’s game-winner? A lucky shot, according to Tristan Thompson.

Paul Pierce’s game-winner?

Dennis Schroder, via J. Michael of CSN Washington:

“At the end, it was a lucky shot and we lost the game,” Schroder said after scoring 16 of his team-high 18 points in the fourth to lead Atlanta’s comeback. “That’s a tough shot. I don’t think he makes it every time.”

Not one NBA player has ever taken a shot he’d make every time. That’s not the standard.

Pierce made this one. That’s all that matters.

Schroder played solid defense, but Piece likes that spot. Tough shot – yes. Lucky shot – no way.
