In the dying seconds of game three between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies, the Thunder trailed by four points and were hoping for a miracle, their prays were answered by their point guard Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook had just turned the ball over on the previous possession which Memphis had capitalised on for an easy layup, its truly a testament to the mental toughness of the former UCLA point guard as he came straight back down the court to display some magic.
With about 26 seconds remaining, Westbrook went round the Kendrick Perkins screen and elevated for a three point jump shot, he was fouled on the play by Tony Allen but somehow managed to still drain the shot.
He headed to the line and sunk the following free throw and levelled the score, sending this exhilarating playoff match into overtime.
