Buzzer beaters make basketball even better than it already is. The odds of two great buzzer beaters that happened last night are probably near impossible.
I first give you freshman guard Tyler Ennis from Syracuse. The 23-0 Syracuse Orange looked to improve to 24-0 and beat conference foe Pittsburgh on the road. Being down one after a pair of made free throws Ennis had to go the length of the floor in 4.4 seconds. I’ll let the video clip speak for itself.
Pretty sweet right? Now I bring you to the NBA. LeBron James and the Miami Heat took on the Golden State Warriors in Oakland last night. Down two with 12.2 seconds left Mario Chalmers brought the ball up and passed to LeBron with 9 seconds remaining. You know LeBron was going to take the last shot. The only question was whether or not he would go for the tie or the win.
Karsch and Anderson producer Khang and myself debated which shot was tougher. Khang thinks that LeBron’s shot was tougher because he was fading away. I think Ennis because he had to go the length of the floor and it kept ‘Cuse undefeated. We want to know what you think. Please vote below.
