Watch: Karl-Anthony Towns makes game-winner from behind basket
Karl-Anthony Towns beat the Memphis Grizzlies with a shot at the buzzer in overtime on Wednesday, and the degree of difficulty for the shot makes it even more impressive.
Minnesota and Memphis were tied at 97 in overtime with just a few seconds left. Andrew Wiggins attempted a shot but it missed off the iron to Towns, who then attempted a shot before the buzzer from the baseline, behind the basket.

Towns only had 16 points in the game, all coming after halftime. He missed all six of his threes as well, but he made a big shot when it counted the most.
The Timberwolves are now 25-26 and have not found any more success since firing Tom Thibodeau.
