Andre Iguodala hit a step-back jump shot with 2.2 second left to lift the 6th seeded, Philadelphia 76ers over the 3rd seeded, Orlando Magic. Hedu Turkoglu looked stunned, as Iguodala's shot narrowly avoided his outstretched finger-tips. 

Facing an 18 point deficit mid-way through the third quarter, the Sixers battled back to cut the lead to 10 entering the fourth quarter, and, with a 35 point performance in the fourth, stormed in front of the Magic to steal back home-court advantage in the opening round playoff series.
