We have a new winner for all the "worst executed game-winning shot in NBA history" lists that I'm sure you'd love to make. Dallas Mavericks guard Darren Collison just tied his team's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder with a one-legged three-pointer at the buzzer after the Mavericks' inbounds pass went astray. Here's the end of the play.
Why was this so weird? The following things led to that shot:
- The Mavericks' inbounds pass to Vince Carter was nowhere near him and got knocked away.
- Shawn Marion recovered and chose to dribble inside the three-point line with his team down by three points.
- Collison jumped off the wrong foot in order to get that shot off.
