Did anybody see this game? HOLY shit was it incredible, I got this awful gut feeling when Duncan made his MVP calibur shot to apparently win the game. I then went from rock bottom to high as heaven when Derek Fisher won the game for the Lakers!!
This was a game for the ages, still gives me chills to see the highlight. Wow...

If you watch the replay frame by frame, which the officials did for quite some time, you see it was a clean play and that fisher released the ball from his hands an entire four frames before the clock got to 0.0. Yes, four frames is practically nothing, but it was enough.
Watching it at full speed, its just incredible to see how fast the whole thing was. And anyways, the Duncan shot fell through the net with 0.7 seconds left, so the Lakers should have had enough time for that shot in the first place which they didnt get.

I have always hated Derek Fisher. Always.
Unfortunately for the Spurs, they are now looking at a backdoor sweep. Serves them right if they are going to continue to miss freethrows - freethrows that would have made both Duncan's and Fisher's heroics irrelevent.

I will say right now, I hate the Lakers with a passion; due to the fact I'm a Kings fan. I absolutely hate the Lakers, but it was a clean shot that was made in time. It was amazing, and I give major props to them. Hopefully it will be the Kings-Lakers in the Western Semi-Confrence Finals, which of course the Kings will win

It was an amazing game. First, I never thought that the Spurs will be able to come back to the game. Then they get one point behind and Duncan makes that incredible basket and everyone says it's over, what a come back. But the thrill doesn't end, 3 timeouts are taken and that 4/10 of a second changes the game again. Amazing! I'm not a Lakers fan at all but I enjoyed every moment of the game.
I don't know if it's possible to make a shot in 0.4 seconds, but they did it and won the game.
As Shaq said after the game, "One lucky shot deserved another".

That Spurs-Lakers game 5 finish was just amazing, surely it must be one of the greatest finishes, if not the greatest in NBA history...last night's 3OT marathon between the Pistons and Nets was pretty amazing too...Jefferson with the apparent game-saving block followed by Billups' 45 footer at the buzzer to tie in regulation...wow!
