DGWT: (1) Game 2 Layup vs. (2) Game 7 layup

Just like the two top teams reached the NBA Finals, our match-up is between the two best shots of the Dirk Game Winners Tourney. It all ends here!

DGWT: (2) Game 7 layup vs. (6) Layup and the foul

THAT Dirk layup over Manu Ginobili goes up against two Hall of Fame power forwards squaring off, and one clearly taking the upper hand with a ridiculous layup.

DGWT: (1) Game 2 Layup vs. (4) Chicago 3-pointer

The layup that completed the epic comeback against Miami in the NBA Finals versus the 3-pointer that proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Dirk was still a force to be reckoned with last season.

DGWT: (1) Game 2 layup vs. (9) Crazy bank shot

That layup has to be the first seed. It's iconic. It's historic. It's everything great about Dirk Nowitzki. And then there's no. 9, and that shot's degree of difficulty might be the highest of the...

DGWT: (3) 3-pointer response vs. (6) And-1 layup

5

Deron gets a crazy bank shot off glass, and then Dirk is all like, "not so fast there, Utah." And then this and-1 layup against KG is bonkers, especially since Garnett is fouling him from the...

DGWT: (2) Game 7 layup vs. (7) Doesn't miss twice

+

Neither are technically game winners, but both were too iconic to leave off. There's Dirk's famous and-1 layup against the Spurs and then there's the 3-pointer that propelled the Mavericks past the...

DGWT: (4) Bulls comeback vs. (12) Pull-up J

3

We all remember the team that wouldn't die last year, despite the starting back court's best efforts. That 3-pointer was fantastic. The next game winner is a simple shot, but has a better backstory.

DGWT: (3) The 3-point answer vs. (14) Sorry, Kaman

+

In one of Dirk's more famous game winners, he buries a 3-pointer after Utah inexplicably leaves him open. The second shot goes way back to 2006, where Dirk drops a game winner over his future...

DGWT: (2) Game 7 layup vs. (15) Overtime winner

1

Is the layup technically a game winner? Nah, but whatever. It might be the most iconic shot of Dirk's career and we just couldn't leave it off. The other is a fun shot, earning Dirk redemption from...

DGWT: (6) And-1 layup vs. (11) Awkward bounce ftw

2

This ridiculous layup by Dirk is bonkers as the no. 6 seed. Facing it is Dirk's most recent game winner and buzzer beater: against the Knicks, at the Garden, with an awkward bounce.

DGWT: (7) Doesn't miss twice vs. (10) Can't stop J

+

Not technically a game winner, but the first contestant is one of the most memorable sequences of the 2011 title run. Next up is a ridiculous turnaround jumper that is just so, so Dirk.

DGWT: (5) Gets the bounce vs. (12) Pull-up J

"HE GETS THE BOUNCE. HE GOT HE BOUNCE," screamed Followill, a call that I am happy to have heard live. The mob scene is just as great. The other game winner is a simple shot, but has a better...

DGWT: (1) Game 2 layup vs. (16) Dirk beats Spain

1

The first seeded Dirk layup in Game 7 against the Spurs takes on a lesser known but still impressive shot in its own rights.

DGWT: (8) Ties playoff series vs. (9) Bank shot

+

One one hand, you have a clutch playoff game winner. On the other, you have a shot that nobody else in the history of the NBA could hit.

DGWT: (4) Bulls comeback vs. (13) Stepback winner

+

We all remember the team that wouldn't die last year, despite the starting back court's best efforts. That 3-pointer was fantastic. On the other side, there's a beautiful step-back winner against...
