Ball Don't Lie - NBA

The Hawks have a cool new end-of-game play. They have a guard throw up an off-balance jumper that misses, but leaves enough time for Josh Smith(notes) to throw down a nasty tip dunk to win the game. They call it "that dunk play" and it's pretty effective.

See? Totally effective. There's basically no way to defend it and it's worked every time they've run it. Good addition to the playbook, I'd say. They should run it more often.
