Andrew Harrison’s Overtime Block is a Game-Saver for the Grizzlies

Trailing two games to one to the San Antonio Spurs, the seven-seed Memphis Grizzlies needed a victory at home to keep their hopes alive.  Hope was in short supply with just over a minute and a half to play in overtime.

Trying to take the lead and behind by two, Memphis turned it over to start a San Antonio two-on-one fast break.  The dagger appeared to be imminent.  Then, Andrew Harrison made a fantastic defensive play.

It’s hard to see that and not think of this.

Aaron approves.

That wasn’t Andrew’s only highlight of the night.

Andrew knocked down two clutch free throws with 22 seconds remaining to give the Grizz a three-point lead.  They gave up a three to Kawhi Leonard, but Marc Gasol’s buzzer-beater ensured Harrison’s play would not be made in vein.  The Grizz won 110-108 to tie the series at two and Harrison finished with 7 points, 3 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one game-changing blocked shot.

    Big time block; led to a five point swing. Andrew gave them some quality minutes tonight, and definitely earned his salary.

    And both of those are good examples of why you dunk on fast breaks

    Good thing Fizdale didn’t have Andrew try to bounce the air out of the ball the last few minutes. We all know that didn’t work out for Andrew once before.

    I’m happy for Andrew…he played really well, and was the unsung hero of the game.

    I was watching the game hoping he’d do something there at the end. I turned it on with 3 minutes left. Harrison got put in at some point and I was just watching and hoping. Then all of a sudden THE BLOCK…..I was excited for sure.
