It took two overtime periods but the Dallas Mavericks were finally able to defeat the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night, 117-116, and they did it in miraculous fashion. With 2.3 seconds left to go in 2OT, Devin Harris inbounds the ball to Deron Williams who cuts to the corner closest to the Kings bench. He's guarded by Rudy Gay who leaps to prevent the shot. Williams holds the ball and then releases after Gay flies by him. The rest is history as the ball finds nothing but the bottom of the nylon as the clock expires. Williams' late game heroics gave the Mavs their first win of 2016 and one of the more exciting games of the season.
You know you'll want to rewatch that shot again and again. Go ahead. No one is going to judge you.
If you look closely, the clock on the TV ticketed back up to 2 seconds remaining after it had already started running down. The in arena shot clock did not and kept the appropriate time. Williams' shot counted and there was not error with the official game clock.
Williams finished the night with 25 points on 10-18 shooting. The game-winner is just the icing on the cake.
