Tough choice for best game-winner of the night, especially with both swamped in controversy. Here you have Manu Ginobili hitting a high-arcing fallaway after getting bumped by Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and possibly traveling. Incredible shot considering everything that happened prior to the Poo God actually releasing the shot. That’s some kind of crazy balance to be able to get off such a soft jumper.
And that’s Paul Pierce’s step back J that looks like it falls through the net with 0.6 seconds remaining, even though the remainder of the game was played with only 0.4 seconds left on the clock. I still think Amar’e's three would have been after the horn considering he took forever to shoot it, but it’s impossible to say. Still a great shot by Pierce, who didn’t even get to shoot his beloved elbow jumper. Nice remix.
If I’m choosing, I think I take Ginobili. His shot seems a teensy bit harder, plus it was an actual buzzer beater. That gives him the smallest of edges in my book, but there’s really no wrong choice. Both shots are amazing. Another classic Wednesday.
