Ball Don't Lie

Grabbing the rebound, crashing through bodies, from 50 feet away, to keep the San Antonio Spurs within two possessions in an elimination Game 6 in which they've struggled to hit even 40 percent of their field goals against some tough, tough Memphis Grizzlies defense. As Internet basketball omnipresence Matt Moore tweeted, "I mean, there's no reason for that to go in." No reason but history, and the favor of the gods, and the cosmic need for stories to have arcs, even if it means arcing 3-point prayers.

Despite Ginobili's second miraculous shot in as many games, the Grizzlies prevailed by a 99-91 score to become just the second eighth seed in NBA history to take down a top seed in a seven-game series.
