Game one of the 2013 NBA Finals was an incredible game with solid performances by both sides, but it was one play with just a few seconds remaining on the clock that will be talked about until Game 2. San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker was dribbling out the shot clock when he needed to quickly get rid of the ball to put away the Miami Heat. It was a one position game, but Parker came up huge and nailed the dagger with just 5.2 seconds left on the clock. Parker let the ball go just as the shot clock expired and the play way reviewed.
After looking at the replay, you could see that Parker got the shot off just before the buzzer. It really was as close of a call and as clutch of a shot as you can have.
Here is the shot that everyone will be talking about:
For the Miami fans, don’t get too concerned. Both of Miami’s NBA titles have come after losses in the series opener.
