."He knew it was a good foul, a hard foul, and I didn't want to give a layup," Pierce said. "I wasn't trying to hurt anybody. She was just coming to her son; that's how moms are when they see something happening to their kids. My mom probably would've done the same thing. LeBron had her under control, though," Pierce said.There's a lot of outside distractions you're going to get at this point, and everybody's going to ask me what happened, so I figured I'd get all those questions out of the way right here." After James' team's 88-77 victory, James was asked to explain his harsh language, which made its way onto the Internet and cable news outlets. "I told her to sit down, in some language I shouldn't have used," James said after the game. "Thank God today wasn't Mother's Day. All I could think about is her. ... I know my mother. It's fine, we're good. Even though that is my mother, you can’t have fans going after players like that. The Commissioner doesn’t care if it is your mother or your kids or anybody, you can't allow fans and players to get involved like that. I can’t afford for my mom not to be at every last one of my games.
