Okay.


yes... given the entire context of that shot... it was... do you have a more lucky one that comes to mind?

game 4, facing elimination, in OT, tie game, and most importantly... the whole offensive possessions was TERRIBLE... Nelson missed  a wide open VC under the basket for a dunk, then launched up a terrible shot, with nobody but Celtics under for the rebound...

awful!

Man, you are the king of overexaggeration...

Luckier shots? 

Game 5 2004 WCF.  Spurs down 2 w/ 5 seconds left.  Tim Duncan throws up a prayer falling sideways and backward to heave a top of the arc shot over Shaq. 

Game 5 2004 WCF.  2 seconds later - Fisher  and 0.4 seconds.

Game 2 2009 ECF.  LeBron's 30 foot prayer w/ the Cavs down by 2.  I mean his look of absolute shock was priceless. You could tell he just threw the ball up and prayed. 

And those were much more pressure filled situations than Nelson's shot.  Even if Nelson misses, there were 2:00 left.

beat me to it, the first thing I thought of when I read this was there was two shots in ONE game that took the breath away and that crucially affected the outcome of that Spurs-Lakers game.

Shaq's famous quote, "One lucky shot deserves another."

A bank shot 3 pointer in the middle of an overtime period? It was a piece of the entire action of both teams that resulted in the Celtics loss, nothing close to either Duncan's or Fisher's shot.

Reason Boston had a bad game is because Orlando played some damn defense for once.

Geez guys. Come on. If Orlando plays like they did last night on the defensive end and gains a bit more confidence, 2 of the last 3 are on their homecourt. They dont have a great chance but I give them a 25-30% chance of winning this series.

man... that is such a bunch of horseshit... i saw all 3 of those plays live... they weren't even close!

how can you even suggest that?

the only one that comes to mind to me is Sean Elliot's falling out of bounds 3 pointer that buried Portland... but since i consider that the single greatest and most clutch shot in the history of the game, i don't consider that one lucky...

 

Jameer's shot was like that episode of the Simpson's, where Homer saves the city due to incompetence, and they call it "Pulling a Homer"...

that's what Jameer did... he "pulled a Homer"...

worked out great, but absolutely terrible...

Fisher's shot wasn't lucky... i mean, what are you thinking?

that was a designed inbounds play... it worked out exactly as they drew it up... yes it was FORTUNATE... but how can you even suggest that is more lucky than that bullshit BANKED 3-pointer by Nelson?

Lebron's too... that was just MONEY... that wasn't luck... is every game winning buzzer beater shot lucky?  that's crap!

Nelson's shot was the luckiest shot i have seen in 30 years, and i have trouble even coming up with a close 2nd... but NONE of the 3 you mentioned are even in the ballpark...

if you are looking for a lucky Tim Duncan shot, you should have talked about the 3-pointer against Phoenix in game 1 (2006?)... TD hadn't shot a 3-pointer all year long, and hurled one up to win that game... and that particular game had probably more lucky shots than any other playoff game i've ever seen, so for that one to cap it off... THAT was a lucky shot...

The one thing that could make this series interesting is the Magic getting hot with 3's.

Shooting tends to be streaky, if you remember, Celtics 3 pt shooters, particularly Allen could not buy a shot in the opening 2 rounds in 2008 when the C's got taken to 2-7 game series, once he found his shot it was lights out as they set several 3 pt shooting records in the finals.

When shooters come-out of these droughts many times they shoot much higher percentages than their season averages, if the Magic heat-up with 3's, things could get real interesting,  other than that possibility and even with that, it will be very, very difficult for the Magic to win this series.

Magic by 5.  

Orlando is going to continue to be aggressive, drive the hoop and get the big men in foul trouble.  This was non existent in the first 3 games.  If the Magic can keep the tempo of the game up and keep Boston out of their half court defense than expect a game 7.

Terrible.....yes.  But THERE WAS 2 MINUTES LEFT IN THE GAME!!!  

I'd say Artest's 3 point attempt last night was way more "homer" than Jameer's.  Regardless of the game outcome.  That was just a flat out dumb, absent minded shot.  

Come on man.
