The Phoenix Suns had the Lakers on the ropes. The Suns had already battled back from a 2-0 series deficit and looked to send Game 5 at the Staples Center to overtime. But the Lakers had one opportunity to avoid overtime and prevent Game 5 from rolling out of their control.
With 3.5 seconds remaining in regulation, the whole world knew the ball was going to Kobe Bryant but it was Ron Artest who turned out to be the hero. Bryant's 3-point heave fell short, yet there was Artest to clean up the miss, hit a game-winning layup and send the Lakers back to Phoenix with a 3-2 series lead.
Here is your one stop to see the shot that rocked the NBA on Thursday night.
