A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:
• Paul Pierce hit the game-winning basket at the buzzer for Boston in its win over the Nets. It was the sixth time in his NBA career that Pierce hit the game-winning field goal with less than one second to go in the fourth quarter or overtime. That's two more such baskets than any other NBA player since Pierce entered the league in 1998-99. Vince Carter and Kobe Bryant are next with four over that span.
