Every time we forget about Tony Parker, he does something to remind us of his greatness.

With the Memphis Grizzlies leading 95-92, the San Antonio Spurs were in need of a miracle. Fortunately, Parker has proved to be something of a miracle man.

Tim Duncan bounced the in-bound pass up court, Parker took three quick dribbles, blew past Zach Randolph and Rudy Gay, and boom.

95-95. Overtime.

Mike Monroe of The San Antonio Express offered his best Reggie Miller description of the events leading up to the play.

So how did it end?

Parker drained a three just a minute-and-a-half into overtime. Unfortunately, that was all San Antonio could muster.

Randolph, Gay and Darrell Arthur all made jump shots and Memphis won, 101-98.

Even still, Parker's buzzer-beater will live on as one of the better moments of the 2012-13 NBA season. Memphis' victory will serve as a turning point in this season.

The Grizzlies have won four in a row and are now 24-10. San Antonio is 28-11 and lost for the third time in five games.

Could we see a changing of the guard in the Southwest Division? Or will Parker's heroics be enough to secure a victory the next time around?

Until then, enjoy this beauty of a buzzer-beater.
