Pierce earned a Flagrant 2 and an ejection on the play, sending him to the showers without a single point on the night.
Per B/R's Howard Beck, Pierce's wallet will also be a little lighter as a result of the hard foul:
Paul Pierce fined $15k for "excessive and unnecessary contact" with George Hill in last night's game. Pierce was ejected on the play.— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) December 24, 2013
Hopefully, the funds will go to Hill's chiropractor. He's going to need some realignment after the way he hit the deck.
