The Utah Jazz coming back from a 22-point deficit to beat the Miami Heat last night was impressive, but the way Paul Millsap single-handedly sent the game into overtime was positively surreal. After Millsap scored 11 points in the final 28 seconds of the fourth quarter (including three three-pointers after going two for 20 from that range previously in his career), I know I wasn’t the only viewer who was reminded of Tracy McGrady’s legendary 13 points in 33 seconds to lead the Rockets over the Spurs in December 2004.
Which performance was better? I honestly can’t decide, but I think we can all agree that Millsap’s was more improbable.
Video evidence of T-Mac’s heroics are after the jump so you can compare and judge for yourself.
