Redemption, thy name is Josh Smith

After fouling the Phoenix Suns' Gerald Green on a three-point attempt in the game's waning seconds, Smith took it upon himself to will the Detroit Pistons to victory, nailing a game-winning runner off the glass with 1.2 seconds remaining. 

Smith totaled a game-high 25 points and 11 rebounds in the 110-108 win.
