The 2012-13 NBA season has been absolutely loaded with buzzer-beaters and game-winners, and we're still less than halfway through the year. Joe Johnson and Kyrie Irving contributed most recently to the league's dramatics with a pair of contest-deciding daggers on Jan. 4.

But their heroics were just a couple of high-arcing drops in the bucket in what's been an amazing collection of late-game shots so far this year.

We've seen a wide array of NBA players getting in on the act too. From veteran gunners like Ray Allen to fresh-faced rookies like Draymond Green, everyone's been trying to beat the buzzer.

There were almost too many to choose from, but we've rounded up the top 10 back-breakers from the 2012-13 season (plus a bonus entry) for your approval.

By the way, if you're a fan of the Charlotte Bobcats, you might want to go ahead and skip our rankings. They're on here a couple of times, but not for reasons you'll like.

All of these shots came in the fourth quarter or overtime, and every one of them decided the game. It was a tough job to rank such a collection of spectacular plays, but hey, somebody had to do it.
