’10-11′s 50 Best Buzzer-Beaters

A collection of the season’s wildest clock-expiring buckets.

This is it—50 of the NBA’s best buzzer beaters from the past season. You may remember our collection from the first half. Well, we’ve added all of the best shots from the second half and below you’ll find, in order, a countdown of the best of the best of ’10-’11. This isn’t an exact science, and in ranking these shots we considered shots that won games, forced OT and flat-out impressed us. Style always counts. Fully aware that we may have placed your favorite shot at the bottom of our countdown, or left it out entirely, feel free to call us out in the comment section below.

  • GeeZee

    With buzzer-beaters we’re talking 0.0 left on the clock.. Pierce left .4 seconds which Amare used to drain a (called off) 3

    Nice compilation of buzzer beaters. What I don’t get; how can a buzzer beater, made at the end of the 1st of 3rd quarter, be higher ranked than a game winner. If you only think about the pressure.
    BTW; Ginobli was a travel ;-) .

    Jrich’s was the best, do you people undeerstand how hard that would be? .4 sec to tap the ball in the hoop, grant hill had to throw it over a guy way taller than him so he couldnt see, but he timed it perfectly with richardsons jump to force OT and then later on WIN the game in 20T.

    Sorry Will, but you’re just wrong.

    Evans buzzer beater.

    Kings made a bucket to put them ahead by one.
    Grizzly time out.
    Mayo sinks an awkward fadeaway to put them up by one
    No Kings time out.
    DMC inbounds to ‘Reke, and the rest is history.

    The one by Evans makes me think of the TX high school championship years ago, with the back to back kickoff return td’s. Heartbreaking losses

    The Pistons were easily forgettable this season. Prince had one notable only for the ball’s comedically long spin on the rim (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfozpOE67As), and there was Austin Daye’s 3-pointer against Philadelphia (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBd9p8lRI0M) which technically wasn’t a buzzer-beater, but was easily the most memorable shot taken by a Piston this season.

    Click my namme…Melo’s game winner on the road against the Grizzlies in Tony Allen’s face with JUST FIVE TENTHS OF A SECOND LEFT was his most memorable clutch moment of this past season.

    Brooklynite Carmelo Kiyan Anthony hit that game winner in a Knicks uniform on March 9th, 2011, the 14th anniversary of the death of fellow Brooklynite Christopher Wallace, aka Biggie Smalls, aka The Notorious B.I.G. . . Hmmm, ILLUMINATI? Whoa

  • YouKnowHec

    Once again, Anthony Morrow’s 3 point Buzzer with 2 guys on him against the Thunder gets overlooked -__-
