Joe Johnson broke Paul Pierce's ankles when the Brooklyn Nets played the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night -- and it had nothing to do with the scuffle that broke out between the two teams during the game. Luckily it had nothing to do with actual body parts either. Around the eight-minute mark of the fourth quarter, Johnson was driving on Pierce and suddenly went low with his dribble. The Celtics forward bit on the move -- and landed on the floor, allowing Johnson to scoot around him for an easy jump shot to give Brooklyn an 11-point lead in Boston.

Josh Smith scored 30 points, Greg Monroe had 13 points and 12 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons handed Indiana its first home loss of the season Monday night, stunning the Pacers, 101-96. The Pistons won for the second time in six games, ended a six-game skid in the series and ended a nine-game losing streak in Indianapolis. Lance Stephenson had a season-high 23 points, and Luis Scola scored 13 of his season-best 18 in the fourth quarter for Indiana (20-4), whose 11-0 start at home was the best in franchise history.

All-Star guard Joe Johnson has agreed to a maximum contract to stay with the Atlanta Hawks, his agent said Sunday. Arn Tellem confirmed an entry he wrote for the Huffington Post website, in which he said Johnson "announced his intention to re-sign with the Hawks for six more years." Tellem wrote that Johnson chose to remain in Atlanta over Chicago and New York, where he would have been reunited with Mike D'Antoni , his former coach in Phoenix. The Hawks could pay him nearly $120 million, while other teams could only give Johnson five years and pay him about $25 million less.

EASTERN CONFERENCE HEAT VS. BUCKS 1. Miami 66-16 (Home: 37-4; Road: 29-12) 8. Milwaukee 38-44 (Home: 21-20; Road: 17-24) Season series: Miami, 3-1. Key stat: LeBron James is making a career-best 56.5% of his shots, which is all the more stunning when you consider he shot 41.7% as a rookie sensation nine seasons ago. Outlook: Milwaukee may not be the 1985-86 Chicago Bulls, who made the playoffs despite a 30-52 record, but it deserves dishonorable mention for beep, beep, beeping into the playoffs like a truck in reverse.

The Angels today own the unofficial major league record for most Mooses--two, as in pitcher Moose Haas and third-base coach Moose Stubing--and it's all because of a mini-bombshell dropped on them by non-roster pitcher Joe Johnson. Saturday, the Angels invited Haas to their spring training camp as an emergency replacement for Johnson, who sustained an Achilles' tendon injury while running in the outfield Friday and was sent home to Plainville, Mass., for treatment.

Though guard Joe Johnson averages a team-leading 18.2 points, many consider Atlanta's best player to be well-rounded forward Josh Smith, who is averaging 15.6 points, 9.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.1 blocks.

Three of the Celtics' 10 losses have been to Atlanta, which had lost seven straight to Boston before this season. Rajon Rondo had 26 points and seven assists for Boston. Rasheed Wallace was a last-minute scratch because of a sore left foot, and Boston was already without Kevin Garnett. The Hawks benefited from three straight technical fouls on the Celtics coaching staff in the third quarter.

Zach Randolph simply dominated NBA news with his own special brand of Zach-ness this last week, just as he dominates the paint. There was a $25,000 fine from the NBA for his off-court confrontation with the Oklahoma City Thunder's Kendrick Perkins . And earlier, the Grizzlies power forward was the subject of a fascinating, lengthy profile by former Times reporter Jonathan Abrams on the website Grantland. The topper of the week happened to be Randolph's own words when he was interviewed by radio host Chris Vernon in Memphis.

Blake Griffin's basketball transition from 2010 to 2011? Seamless. He closed the year with a double-double, and he opened 2011 with yet another double-double. Consistency is in the air. Unfortunately, for the Clippers, this specific brand of consistency falls in the category of second-half collapses. Call it subterranean second-half blues. They led the Hawks by 16 points in the second quarter, let the lead drop to 11 at the half and gave it up for good with six minutes remaining.

This was the kind of game, the kind of matchup that easily could get Kobe Bryant's attention. The Atlanta Hawks have an All-Star guard in Joe Johnson, a 6-foot-7, 240-pound athlete who also has free rein in his team's offense. Numbers-wise, it was pretty much even between Bryant and Johnson. Bryant had 28 points on 12-for-21 shooting. Johnson 25 points on 10-for-20 shooting. Though they didn't guard each other the entire game, Johnson got the upper hand because his team defeated the Lakers, 109-92, Wednesday night at Philips Arena and because Johnson played a bigger role for his team in the second half.

Phoenix Sun guard Joe Johnson will not play in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals tonight, Coach Mike D'Antoni said Monday. That will give Johnson four more days to get ready for a possible return for Game 3 Saturday in San Antonio. Johnson has been sidelined since he fractured his left eye socket on May 11 in a face-first fall to the court against Dallas. He underwent surgery the following day. "That's the whole thing. That's why we're not rushing him," D'Antoni said.
