Gary Neal hits 3 pointer at buzzer to send Spurs to OT and then win

The San Antonio Spurs are perhaps the most under-whelming one seed the NBA has seen in a while. They landed atop the western conference, but never really had much to show for it. However, all of their inadequacies came to the fore-front against the Memphis Grizzles. A young team who's grit and power up front was able to push the Spurs to the brink by leading their series 3-1. Last night's game 5 looked like it was a wrap for the Spurs. With just over 2 seconds left, it looked like Manu Ginobili scored the game tying 3 pointer until a replay showed his left foot was right on the line, making it just a two and leaving the Spurs down by one. Zach Randolph hit both of his free throw shots which put the Grizzlies back up by 3 with just 1.7 seconds left on the clock. Then, this happened:

Yep. The Grizzlies weren't able to rebound from that shocking disappointment and lost the game in overtime. See you in Memphis.

Who doesn't love basketball in April?
