Nene scored 30 points on 13 of 19 shooting including a game winning dunk with less than a second left on the clock.
“I just prayed,” Nene said. “I wanted to finish with the ball in my hands. They put the ball into my hands. John, he did amazing, penetration right there, he found me right there.”
The only thing that would have made this play any better is if John Wall, who had 12 assists including this one, and Nene did the Nae Nae dance after the play.
“I wanted to shoot a jump shot,” Wall said. “I saw Anthony Davis come and I wanted to whip it around to (Marcin Gortat). But I saw (Jeff) Withey come at the same time and I saw Nene right there and that was the easiest, safest pass and luckily he got it off in time.”
