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.

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.
