Video: Ray Allen hits game-tying three pointer to send epic Game 6 into overtime

ray allen three pointer overtime

When in doubt, put the ball in the hands of one of the best three-point shooters in the history of the NBA.

First, LeBron James launched a three from well beyond the arc with his Heat squad down, 95-92, with only seconds remaining on the clock. His attempt bounced high off the back of the rim, but the much-maligned Chris Bosh managed to yank down the offensive rebound.

Showing what we have to give credit for as spectacular awareness, Bosh dished it out to Ray Allen, who has proven time and time again that he can hit threes from any location on the court, at any time.

With one of the smoothest shooting strokes a fan will ever see, Allen went draino against the Spurs with only 5.2 seconds remaining. He buried a three-pointer from the corner to send what was already an epic Game 6 into overtime.

The Heat would prove their championship mettle in overtime, holding off the Spurs for an unbelievable 103-100 win.

LeBron James recorded a triple-double, scoring a game high 32 points while dishing 11 assists and pulling down 10 rebounds.

Tim Duncan led the Spurs in scoring with 30 points and all rebounders with 17. However, the future Hall of Famer only managed to score five points after the half.

A winner-take-all Game 7 is set for Thursday night at 9:00 p.m.
