Video: Darren Collison nails off-balance, buzzer-beating shot to send game into OT
On Thursday, the Dallas Mavericks almost literally snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.
Down by three points with just 2.2 seconds to go, Dallas needed this miraculous shot by Darren Collison just to force overtime. Collison somehow managed to sink the prayer despite the Mavs completely botching the inbound pass. It is a mystery how he was able to stay behind the arc while launching the off-balance shot.
As fate would have it though, the host Thunder went on to deliver a heart-crushing defeat in overtime, 111-105.
Collison paced the Mavs with a team-high 32 points in the losing effort.
Kevin Durant poured in a game-high as OKC improved to 22-6 on the year.
