Derrick Rose started the trend by knocking down a deep 3 to give the Bulls a 99-96 edge in game 3 on Friday night.
The next day, Paul Pierce continued the trend against the Atlanta Hawks. Pierce was posted at the top of the key with about 3 seconds left. He then squared to the basket and knocked down a tough shot as defenders rushed towards him. He lifted the Wizards over the Hawks 103-101.
Then came Sunday, time for LeBron and Co. to get revenge on Derrick Rose and the Bulls. With 1.5 seconds left in the game, it was tied 84-84. Then LeBron ran to the corner caught an inbounds pass and knocked down a deep two-pointer to win the game.
While the Cavaliers and Bulls head into their off-day with the series tied up 2-2, the Wizards and Hawks are back at it again tonight. Time will only tell if the Wizards have a late trick up their sleeves or if the Hawks will snatch up a final second victory in order to continue the streak of consecutive buzzer-beaters. Even if they don't, this past weekend was a fun one for basketball fans everywhere.
