San Antonio Spurs Lose on Buzzer-Beater Against Alba Berlin

It's quite uncommon to see an NBA team lose to an opponent from another continent, but it's even rarer when that NBA team is the defending champion.

The San Antonio Spurs took a trip to Germany to play Alba Berlin in a friendly scrimmage during the NBA preseason. While they were the heavy favorites, the Spurs somehow lost on the wildest of sequences, culminating with a buzzer-beater from Jamel McLean which gave his team a 94-93 win.

The game doesn't count for anything, but the Alba Berlin players will always have bragging rights after stunning the Spurs.
