NBCSportsNorthwest captures video of the arena stopping, including both NBA teams that were warming up at the time.

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings won a miracle-comeback playoffs victory against the New Orleans Saints last night, courtesy of a last-second, 61-yard touchdown pass that saved their season and Superbowl hopes. During that exact moment, the Portland Trail Blazers and Minnesota Timberwolves were warming up on the court at Target Center in preparation for their NBA contest. It’s a small thing in the big scheme of things, but it’s still cool to see the arena crowd, and may players, stop for a moment in wonder as the play was broadcast live over the arena big screens.

NBCSportsNorthwest caught the moment on video here.
