Darren Collison made an improbable, crazy three-point shot at the end of regulation to send the Mavericks-Thunder game to overtime in Oklahoma City on Thursday. Dallas was inbounding the ball with 2.2 seconds left in the game and the team down 98-95. Shawn Marion passed the ball to Vince Carter, who lost the ball. Luckily Marion got a hold of it and passed to Darren Collison, who was standing behind the three-point line. With only 0.3 seconds left, Collison had to do the closest thing to a tip-in on a three-point shot attempt that we could imagine. His shot somehow went in as time expired. Oklahoma City outscored Dallas 13-7 in overtime to win the game 111-105, but that doesn’t take away how exciting the finish was. Collison finished with a season-high 33 points on 13-for-22 shooting. He made all four of his three-point attempts and added four assists and four steals in the loss. Kevin Durant scored 40 in the Thunder’s win.
