10. Tracy McGrady's 13 Points in 35 Seconds

1 of 10

    Tracy McGrady knocking down four three's (one of which was an "and-1") to score 13 points for the win against the Spurs. This bottoms out our list at No. 10.

9. Blazers vs. Mavericks, 2011

2 of 10

    A comeback from this year's playoffs: 23 points down to the Mavs, Portland comes from behind for the win. This earns No. 9 on our list.

8. Reggie Miller's 8 Points in 9 Seconds

3 of 10

    Playoff action, 1995 Pacers vs. Knicks. Reggie Miller hits two free-throws, shoots and drains a three off of an in-bounds play, steals the ball on an in-bounds play, dribbles out to the three-line again, and nails the shot for the win. Eight points in nine seconds; good enough to make No. 8 on our list.

7. Jazz at Heat, 2010

4 of 10

    Paul Millsap was just 2-for-20 in NBA three-pointers before this night, and miraculously hits three in a row!

    Led behind Paul Millsap's 11 Points in 28 Seconds, the Jazz come back in the final minute of the game and send it to overtime. The Jazz hold on to win in OT, and place at No. 7 on our list.

6. Celtics at Lakers, 2008

5 of 10

    NBA Finals Game 4, Boston posts a comeback from 24 points down. This game reaches No. 6 on our list.

5. Jazz at Blazers, 2010

6 of 10

    25-points down, the Utah Jazz or "The Comeback Kids" come from behind to beat the Blazers in overtime thanks to Deron Williams' 18 points, 7 rebounds, and 12 assists. No. 5 on our list!

4. Mavericks vs. Timberwolves, 2008

7 of 10

    A stunning 29-point comeback by the Dallas Mavericks. This makes No. 4 on our list!

3. Lakers vs. Kings, 2007

8 of 10

    A miraculous 14-0 run in the last 50 seconds of the game provided the Lakers with the push over the top and a win over the Kings. No. 3 on our list!

2. Kings at Bulls, 2009

9 of 10

    An incredible 35-point comeback by the Sacramento Kings to beat the Chicago Bulls. This comeback makes No. 2 on our list!

1. Jazz vs. Nuggets, 1998

10 of 10

    Literally the greatest comeback in NBA history: from 36 points down, the Utah Jazz claim a shocking win over the Denver Nuggets. Of course this made No. 1 on our list!
