I think it’s safe to say Tyreke Evans has officially redeemed himself after having his ankles broken by Derrick Rose earlier in the season. Are NBA teams spending more time in practice working on half-court and full-court shots or something? We already showed you this 75-foot shot by Chauncey Billups that was waved off for traveling and this one from Gilbert Arenas that didn’t count because it bounced of the shot clock. Evans finally gave us one that counted on Wednesday night in a win over the Grizzlies.
With 1.5 seconds remaining in the game, it looked like O.J. Mayo would be the hero of the night after he hit a ridiculous fadeaway jumper from just inside the three-point line to give Memphis a 97-96 lead. That was when Evans decided he didn’t want the game to end like that in his house. Check out the video of Tyreke Evans’ half-court game winner:
Bravo, Tyreke. Bravo.Google+
