One Of The Great NBA Shots Of All Time…Didn’t Count

So close AND so far.

Last night, the Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 88-84 to advance to the Western Conference Finals. The star of the game was Zach Randolph, who put up 28 points and 14 rebounds, but the highlight of the game went to Jerryd Bayless.

At the end of the 3rd quarter, Bayless drained a one-handed full-court shot. That’s some serious strength and aim.

Unfortunately, it was the END of the quarter. As in, the quarter was over and the basket did not count.

It was still a nice shot, though. Just do that during the game next time, dude.
