Rudy Gay Hits Buzzer-Beating Shot to Send Game vs. Blazers to Overtime

Dan Favale@@danfavaleFeatured ColumnistNovember 17, 2013

LeBron James isn't the only NBA player who can sink buzzer-beating layups.

Trailing the Portland Trail Blazers by two points with 4.3 seconds remaining in regulation, the Toronto Raptors' Rudy Gay drained a layup as time expired to force overtime:

This defensive sequence didn't say much about the Blazers. Gay went around Nicolas Batum without much resistance, and LaMarcus Aldridge's help defense—well, it wasn't there.

Toronto would lose the game 118-110 in overtime, diminishing the importance of Gay's fourth-quarter heroics. But hey, at least we'll always have Gay's best LeBron-against-the-Indiana Pacers-in-Game-1-of-the-2013 Eastern Conference Finals impression.
