During regulation, Batum’s two most memorable shots were two easy missed dunks but by the time the game ended after logging in 43 minutes in two overtimes vs the Cavs, Batum’s most memorable shots would be at the buzzer shots.

The first at the buzzer shot was a thought to be game winner at the end of OT where Batum channeled Derek Fisher against the Spurs and hit a toss shot with less than a second left.  The Blazers celebration was short lived as the refs called it off.   At the end of double OT, Batum had 2 more seconds to work with when he took and made a fadeaway 3 pointer from the corner.
