9. Darren Collison Nails One-Footed Three to Send Game to Overtime In a nationally televised game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Darren Collison had arguably the best game of his career. Collison finished the game with over 30 points, including this unbelievable one-footed three to send the game to overtime. Click here to view the video on YouTube. 8. Morris Peterson Catches Ball in Air, Sends Game to Overtime In a huge matchup between the Raptors and Wizards (I hope you sensed my sarcasm), the Raptors had three seconds to execute a Christian Laettner type play. On the full court pass, the Wizards stole the ball, and Michael Ruffin threw it in the air expecting the clock to run out. Unfortunately for him (and fortunately for Mo Pete) the throw wasn’t quite high enough, and Peterson grabbed the ball in mid air and sunk the improbable three.

However, LeBron had other plans, put the team on his back, and won the game. Click here to view the video on YouTube. 6. Trail-Blazers, Rockets End of Game Madness This was one of the craziest regular season endings in NBA history, with three apparent game winners hit in the final 1.8 seconds of overtime. In a back-and-forth battle, Brandon Roy proved to be a little too clutch, winning the game for the Blazers. Click here to view the video on YouTube. 5. Rasheed Sends the Pistons to Overtime With just 1.3 seconds on the clock, all Denver had to do was inbound the ball (on the offensive side of the court) and let the clock expire. Instead, Rasheed Wallace comes up with an incredible steal and drains an unbelievable shot from beyond half court. Click here to view the video on YouTube. 4. Devin Harris Wins Game Down by one with just 1.8 on the clock, Devin Harris drains a half court shot despite having the ball stripped out of his hands in the process. Unfortunately, the Nets still went on to have a lackluster season. Click here to view the video on YouTube. 3. Kobe Sends Game to Overtime and Hits Game Winner Realistically, Kobe probably has nine shots worthy of being on this list, but we’ll cut it down to these two shots to give other shots a chance. In the last game of the regular season, Kobe hits two incredible threes, one to send the game to overtime and one for the win. Click here to view the video on YouTube. 2. Michael over Russell What would this list be without the greatest player in NBA history. In a highlight that I’m sure Bryon Russell just wishes would go away, Jordan hits a huge fade away for the win in the Finals. Was there a push off? You be the judge. Click here to view the video on YouTube. 1. Derek Fishers 0.4 “One lucky shot deserves another.” That is the only way Shaquille O’Neal could describe this incredible playoff game against the Spurs. First Kobe, then Duncan, and then Fisher with the most incredible game winner of all time. The Lakers would ride this momentum and go on to win the NBA title.
