Damian Lillard

Best clutch shots of the 2013-14 NBA season (VIDEO)


This one’s fun.

Looking back at last season, there were a number of memorable moments that resulted from players hitting a variety of buzzer-beating, game-winning shots And this video has most of them.

Damian Lillard makes multiple appearances, as does Joe Johnson and Andre Iguodala.

I was at two of these games — the Nets beating the Suns thanks to Johnson, and the Mavericks taking down the Knicks due to the heroics of Dirk Nowitzki.

Lillard’s postseason shot that sent the Rockets home for the summer may have been the best one of all; let us know which one was your favorite in the comments.

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.

LeBron James sat out the Cavs’ preseason game against the Sixers on Thursday night, but Cleveland still held the lead for all but the final 5.4 seconds. Then, Sixers rookie Scottie Wilbekin did this:

Wilbekin, who played college ball at Florida, has a chance to earn legitimate minutes for the Sixers this season as they try to find young talent on the cheap. This is a good start.
