Nash's lean-in jumper from the foul line broke a 105-105 tie. The Jazz called timeout and C.J. Miles' rushed shot from the corner was an airball. Paul Millsap grabbed the rebound and scored but the officials, after reviewing the replay, ruled the basket came after time ran out.

Jefferson tied the game again with a basket in the lane with nine seconds left, but Nash still had time to be the hero.
