Washington Wizards fans thought Paul Pierce had done it again. In Game 3, Pierce banked in the game-winning bucket to give Washington the win.

With time winding down in the fourth quarter of Game 6 Friday night, The Truth heaved up a three-pointer that would have sent the game into overtime.

It went in. However, the ball was still in Pierce's hands when the clock struck zero. The Wizards fell 94-91, and the Atlanta Hawks won the series 4-2.

The Washington Post sports section summed up this heartbreaking loss on its front page. And to add insult to injury for D.C. fans, earlier in the week the Washington Capitals fell to the New York Rangers in Game 7 after leading the series 3-1.

Don't worry, Washington fans, football season is coming up!
