Back in 2012 Paul Milsap had the easiest game winning opportunity he could ever imagine.
But then this is what happened.
As memorable as the actual game winners are, the misses are instantly forgotten, and there are some great ones, so why not check out a few of the wildest missed game winners. What up everybody my name is Stefan and this is Heat Check. Let’s get into it.
You all know this legendary shot by Reggie Miller over MJ in the playoffs. But do you know what happens next? There’s still time on the clock. 7 tenths of a second. And Michael has a shot for the win.
The ball went all the way in but somehow still bounced out preventing what could have been one of the most amazing sequences in NBA history.
And speaking of amazing sequences watch what happened in 2011 in a game between Utah and Denver. Truly unbelievable! Although Kirilenko missed that, I gotta give him props for being aware and smart with the steal. Great defense by him at least.
I know I’ve mentioned this moment in an older video but it’s too good to pass it up.
At least Milsap’s was an alley oop, but Brandon Knight had the most basic layup ever imaginable. And he missed it. Truly infamous moment in his career.
Similar thing happened to Danilo Galinari as well. The only difference is that this one was for the tie. So I guess even worse since they lost the game.
I recently made a video about how Courtney Lee could have been the hero of the NBA finals back in 09. If you missed that one, here is a sneak peak at what happened at the end of regulation in game 2. That finals series could have looked much more different if Lee was able to make this.
Here’s one from last season which is too insane. Listen to the commentator laughing at how wild this is.
In a maneuver that only he can pull off, Kyrie recovers from his fall, and actually gets an open shot to win the game, but juuust misses.
And last play, check out this shot from Marcus Smart where the ball seamingly stood at the rim forever. If Kawhi Leonard had the fortune on his side with the game winner against Philly, the basketball gods were not so kind to Smart here in this situation and you can see the reaction from everyone on the Celtics, pretty much says it all.
Hopefully I showed you a few moments that you hadn’t seen before. Let me know in the comments. That’s it for now, subscribe and talk to you in the next one. Peace out.
