Lakers/Spurs Game Five....WOW!

Fri May 14, 2004 3:43 pm

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...

I didn't even know it was possible to make a shot in .4 seconds, just incredible. However I was going for the Spurs.

Well, seems like the Spurs are not happy with the result... they've filed a protest claiming that the basket was outside of the 0.4 seconds that LA had to shoot.

is it even possible to pass the ball to another play and make a basket in 0.4 seconds? That's less than half a second!

The clock starts, when the first player ON THE FIELD touches the ball (so not the guy who throws it in).

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.

Its impossible to make a turn around basket like Fisher did in .4 seconds. The clock did not start intill the ball was out of his hand. The referees are too stupid to realize that.

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 guess the Lakers (or better Shaq) have missed more free throws than the Spurs.

"The clock did not start intill the ball was out of his hand. The referees are too stupid to realize that."

...And statements like that really establish you as an intelligent person.  Insane

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  Big thumbs up

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".

Yeah Kings lost tonight, that sucks. I don't think we can win the 7th game at the target center.

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!
