Toronto Fans Taunted An ESPN Announcer Before Game 1

Paul Pierce has had a rough NBA Playoffs as an analyst so far. The crowd in Toronto tried to make it even worse for him tonight.

Raptors fans aren't too keen of Pierce, who picked the Milwaukee Bucks to beat them in the last round. That was just one of a slew of faulty predictions Pierce has made thus far in the postseason.

Before tonight's game, the crowd at Scotiabank Arena serenaded Pierce on the ESPN set, chanting "Paul Pierce sucks!" at him.

The former Boston Celtics star took it in stride and even encouraged the crowd.

Interestingly, Pierce picked the Raptors to win the NBA Finals in six games. If history is any indicator, that is good news for the Golden State Warriors.

The Raptors and Warriors are locked in a tight battle early on in Game 1.

You can catch the action on ABC.
