|Game 6: The carnage continues||04.30.09 at 8:51 pm ET|
Paul Pierce took an inadvertent shot from Tyrus Thomas early in the third quarter and walked off the floor with blood spurting from his mouth. It came on a loose ball situation and it looked like Pierce had a tooth knocked out. The play continued with Kendrick Perkins getting two free throws after the C’s played 4-on-5.
Tony Allen replaced Pierce in the lineup.
