We’re due for some NBA highlights on the site and leave it to the Milwaukee Bucks (?!) to do just that.
Here, in the form of a buzzer beater to break the Miami Heat’s heart and sweep the season series. Big win as the Bucks and Heat are neck and neck as the #6 and #7 seed respectively.
Best part about this: Zaza’s hustle, the actual shot, or the mob reaction from the team? I lean towards the latter. Great reaction.
This will be replayed for years to come.
Moments ago, Georgia State’s RJ Hunter capped a 13-0 run with this NBA-range 3 with 2.8 seconds left that caused his dad and head coach Ron Hunter, who tore his achilles on Sunday celebrating when Georgia St. won their conference tourney to earn a bid to the tournament, TO LITERALLY FELL OFF HIS CHAIR!
You can’t script this. Father and son, the celebration Sunday, the celebration today. The way they came back. This is what March Madness is all about.
We don’t have an NCAA section here, but this is fitting for the NBA section because after all, RJ Hunter is a 1st round prospect. Look out for him, Kevin Ware (yup, that Kevin Ware) and the Georgia State Panthers to continue their Cinderella run on Saturday.
Undermanned and the backup, backup point guard has a career night and game-winning 3 for a W. E’Twaun Moore follows in the steps of DJ Augustin, Nate Robinson, and John Lucas III with this random breakout game — 19 points, a career high, and 9/10 shooting. The play Thibs drew up proved to be perfect with 4 seconds left as he used Pau as a decoy down low to feed the hot hand. The ensuing Pau/E’Twaun hug was heartwarming too. #SeeRed
Welcome back, Craig Sager as well! I know you were probably planning on talking to Russell Westbrook (who put up a ho-hum 40, 8, and 7) but no, you’re post-game interview is with E’Twaun Moore.
Poor Suns. While we were watching the Grammys, they found yet another way to lose at the buzzer — their astonishing 4th (!) time in 32 games.
DeMarcus Cousins put em away with a dramatic shot that got the roll. Watch and see above.
^^ This was good. Wow.
AD topping even James Harden for buzzer beater of the year. What an adjust by Davis in mid-air to cap off a thrilling ending, 41 points and 10 rebounds, and a 106-103 victory over their 8-seed chasing rival, OKC Thunder. Westbrook had a career high 48 points with 3 FTs to tie the game and set the stage for Davis’ heroics with 1.2 seconds left. If you saw the ending to this live, you were in for a treat. Incredible.
