Last night's game featured a few questionable, ugly plays. The Miami Heat fought through adversity, however, and pulled out the 94-87 overtime win over the Raptors to tie the series at 2-2 headed back to Miami.
Near the end of the overtime period, leading by only a few points, Dwyane Wade drove right and flipped the ball towards the hoop. It caromed off the backboard, off the front of the rim, hit the heel of the rim and then....just....just...
Have you ever seen a crazier bounce? I mean, balls get wedged against the rim all the time. But, I've never seen this exact thing happen. Ever.
Turns out, I'm not alone:
I've never seen an inbounds passer elbow a defender OR a layup bounce backwards and come to a rest on the back of the rim. The NBA playoffs!— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) May 10, 2016
