Tyson Chandler Comes Through for Suns with Game-Winning Dunk in Final Second

Steve Silverman@@profootballboyFeatured ColumnistDecember 27, 2017

Wins don't come easily for the Phoenix Suns, and it didn't look like they would come up with one in regulation Tuesday night against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The two teams were tied at 97 with six tenths of a second left in the fourth period. The Suns had the ball, but overtime seemed inevitable.

Nobody, however, gave that message to Tyson Chandler. He stationed himself under the basket, and Dragan Bender threw him a two-handed pass on an inbounds play. The ball never hit the rim as Chandler went up and got it and dunked it down for the game-winning points.

The referees reviewed the play and declared it to be a good and legal shot. The Suns gained a 99-97 win over the Grizzlies—their 13th victory in 36 games this season.
