The Phoenix Suns came up big in the final 5 seconds on Sunday night. Twice.
The first big shot came with less than five seconds left as Eric Bledsoe put the Suns level with the Boston Celtics, 106-106, after a drive down the left side of the lane.
The ball bounced right to Phoenix’s Tyler Ulis, who hoisted a 3-pointer as time expired. It went in, and the fans in Arizona went nuts:
For those asking the question, since Chriss did not intentionally hit the ball with his foot it could not be deemed a kicked ball by NBA rules.
NBA officials reviewed the play and determined Ulis’ shot came before the buzzer, giving the Suns the win over Boston, 109-106.
