These are the moments NBA players (not named Nick Anderson) live for: down by 1 with less than 1 second left on the clock with 2 free throws coming up. That was the situation Monta Ellis was in on Monday night against the Heat, but he missed the first free throw. He did connect on the 2nd, which forced an OT, where the Heat dominated the Pacers by outscoring them 13-5.
Ellis was 1 of 3 in OT and finished the game with 7 points on 2 of 17 shooting.
Because I don’t want a bunch of messages about how clutch Monta is, I’ll go ahead and post a few of his many memorable game-winners.
