Dejounte’s wacky, buzzer-beating, game-tying, overtime-forcing clutch jumper

And the play that led up to it.

NBA: Brooklyn Nets at San Antonio Spurs Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports

In case you missed last night’s game, the Spurs dropped their first at-home contest to the Brooklyn Nets since 2002. But they didn’t go down without a fight. Down by ten with 2 minutes left, they went in a 10-0 run to send the game into overtime, and it was made possible by Dejounte Murray’s buzzer-beater:

Forgetting for a moment that James Harden could have been called for a foul on Murray and the game could have hinged on free throws, Murray regained his composure and knocked down a wacky shot.

In addition to Dejounte’s theatrics, he hit a Spurs milestone. The Seattle native dished out his 700th dime.

Only five Spurs have more assists in their first 215 games than Murray: Tony Parker, Johnny Moore, Alvin Robertson, Johnny Dawkins, and Willie Anderson.

Not bad company to be in.
