Mario Chalmers banks in 30-foot 3-pointer to beat third-quarter buzzer

15 Comments

Mario Chalmers, who knows something about making buzzer-beating 3-pointers in winner-take-all games, inbounded the ball with 5.2 seconds left in the third quarter, immediately got a pass back from Ray Allen and dashed upcourt unimpeded. Then, he pulled up from 30 feet to bank what has so far been the biggest shot of the biggest game of the NBA season.

A Gregg Popovich team should know to account for the inbounder, even if the inbounder never has a chance to get closer than 30 feet from the basket.
