Paul Pierce says foul on Kobe Bryant ‘blown out of proportion’

WALTHAM — From the moment Dahntay Jones fouled Kobe Bryant [1] on Wednesday night, causing Bryant to badly roll his right ankle, it seemed everyone had an opinion, including Kobe himself.

No foul was called but the NBA admitted Friday that one should’ve been called in the game won by the Hawks over Bryant’s Lakers. It was classified as a high ankle sprain and Bryant was questionable for Friday’s game in Indiana.

Celtics [2] captain Paul Pierce [3] saw the same highlight and this was his take:

“I had a chance to kind of see it,” Pierce said. “I think it got kind blown out of proportion. He put his hands up, got into his defender. The fact it was Kobe Bryant, it’s an issue. If it was anybody else (injured), we wouldn’t probably even be talking about this.”
