NBA Finals 2010 - Buzzer Beater Bank Shot

Kobe puts it up with 3 seconds left… it’s short… air ball… Ron Artest jumps up and snatches the ball… he shoots at the buzzer… it’s in!!! Lakers Win!!!


All night long the Los Angeles Lakers were beating the Phoenix Suns in a crucial game 5 semi-final, but Steve Nash brought the Suns to a 4th quarter lead to surprise everyone at the Staples Centre. The game was tied 101-101 with only 3 seconds left on the clock and it looked like the game was going to go to overtime.


The Bank Shot

The Lakers had the ball on the sidelines and it was passed to Kobe Bryant who took a 3-point shot immediately. But with a hand in the face, the ball fell serendipitously short right to Ron Artest, who quickly banked it in at the buzzer winning the game for the Lakers, giving them a 3-2 game lead in the NBA best-of-7 series.


Winning that game was key for the LA Lakers because the Suns had won the last two game and were using some incredible momentum to overcome the Lakers 2-0 lead. If the Suns had won that game, it would have probably been quite easy for them to finish off the Lakers at home in game 6 which will be played Saturday night in Phoenix.


Celtics vs Magic

Weird things are happening in Boston. It wasn’t enough for Boston fans to be only the 3rd team ever to lose a best-of-7 series after being up 3-0 to the Philadelphia Flyers in the NHL playoffs, but now Boston is in danger of letting it happen again. The Boston Celtics have let their 3-0 lead on the Orlando Magic fall to only 3-2 and they were really dominated in game 5 losing 113-92.

What Sucks More in B-Ball?

  • A hoop with no net.
  • Shoes with no laces.
