Thriller in Portland Overtime
Posted November 06, 2008 - 11:02 PM
Houston trail by as much as 10, T-Mac make 2 FTs to tie the game at 90 in regulation.
In OT, last 4 plays, T-Mac bait a shot with no call to take a 96-94 lead. Aldridge later got fouled and 2FTs, rockets miss on the other end, and here comes the heroics.
Roy came down, off balanced Artest and hit a shot to take the lead at 98-96. Yao later got double teamed but hit a fadeaway shot and got the And1. He hit the FT to make it 99-98. With 0.08 secs left, Brandon Roy took the inbounds pass near the sideline, turnaround and shot a high arching 3 that WENT IN!!!! I could have sworn there was no arc!!! But it went in and Portland broke loose.
Yao's and1 was remarkable, but roy's just took it off the records.
Rockets headed to LA with the loss. I was watching this game to see how 'good' Houston is....

I marked out when Roy's 3 at .8 sec went in.
Yeah...also the 0.4.
Dammit I knew I shouldnt have gone to bed!!!!
Great finish though. Shot reminded me of Kobe's in 04 against the Blazers. A lot of arch.
Eh anyway, I made a mistake, it's 00.8, not 0.08....=.= 0.08 is a tip in.

Ref tells Yao to give some space...so he stands in my estimation at least 5-6 feet from the inbounder and never moves closer to contesting the inbound...DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB PLAY. Yea he's jumpin around but he's not even close to him
he gave enough space for the inbounder to give the ball to Roy who finished the deal

brandon roy, a superstar? the jury's still out on that one
Are you kidding?Roy has already been an All-Star, ROY, is the leader of the up and coming Trailblazers, all in the span of 2 (going on three) seasons.
