With the Atlanta Hawks up two and four seconds remaining on the clock, Denver's Danilo Gallinari hit an incredibly difficult three-pointer while falling out of bounds to put the Nuggets ahead by one. Atlanta's Kirk Hinrich was sent to the line for two free throws with 1.1 seconds left in regulation, but could only connect on one of his two attempts, sending the game into overtime.

In the extra session, the Hawks had a chance to win it, but Zaza Pachulia was unable to connect at the rim. 

Check out how Gallinari was falling backward as the ball sailed through the net. What a shot.
