Unbelievable finish in Jersey

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bradford Doolittle @ 11:29 pm

I don’t know how many NBA games I’ve seen in my life, but I just witnessed the most incredible game-winning shot I think I’ve ever seen. If you didn’t see the end of the the Nets-Sixers game tonight, be sure to tune into SportsCenter later to see this. The scenario: Philadelphia’s Andre Iguodala made the second of two free throws, putting the Sixers up 96-95 with 1.8 seconds left. The Nets were out of timeouts. New Jersey inbounded the ball to Devin Harris on the Philly side of halfcourt, along the left sideline. Iguodala reached in and knocked the ball loose, fortunate to not be whistled for a foul, but Harris recovered the ball in full stride and flipped in a shot from a little beyond the halfcourt line to win the game at the buzzer. The shot was called good two or three minutes after the fact thanks to a long replay review. The playback showed that the ball left Harris’ fingertips a split second before the red lights came on. Shot good. Nets win. Unbelievable.
