The NBA has released a highlight reel of Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, which saw a number of early misses at point-blank range before he hit a game-winning three in double overtime. Hat tip: ProBasketballTalk.
Have a look.
CSNNW.com has video of Batum's post-game reaction.
"I had to make sure this one counts."
Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com had this quote too.
"I didn't think I got it off, so I didn't get too excited," Batum said. "Everybody started coming towards me and saying 'We won' so I was like 'Okay, let's get out of here.' But they (referees) called us back and I was like, 'Oh boy.'"
