What Happened Last Night: Tony Parker Hit A Buzzer Beater, Chargers Stomped The Chiefs
Still clinging to the hurricane as an excuse for your non-sports watching ways? Enough, already. Sit down in front of the tube and take in some wholesome American sports. Anyway, here's what you missed.
The Spurs took out the Thunder on a game-winning buzzer beater from Tony Parker.
Despite San Antonio controlling the game the entire way, Oklahoma City came storming back in the final few minutes to take a three-point lead. But with the shot clock winding down and Danny Green nearly throwing the ball out of bounds, Boris Diaw fired a one-handed pass to Tony Parker in the corner. Without hesitation, Parker nailed a high-arcing three to tie the game at 84. On the ensuing possession, Oklahoma City had the ball with 28 seconds to go. Russell Westbrook wound down the clock before Kevin Durant came to the elbow off a down screen. Except as he caught the ball, Kawhi Leonard stripped him and Tim Duncan picked up the ball.
Greg Popovich then drew up a perfectly executed play in which Tony Parker came from under the basket to the foul extended through two screens. Westbook got caught up among the bodies and Serge Ibaka's outstretched hand couldn't quite block Parker's long two. As the horn sounded, it went through the net and the Spurs won. Maybe not the revenge they're looking for, but the Spurs will take it.
The terrible San Diego Chargers blew out the even more terrible Kansas City Chiefs.
Matt Cassel had two turnovers (shocker) and the Kansas City Chiefs offense couldn't move the ball (bigger shocker) as the Chargers took over in the fourth, pouring in 21 points and running away with the game. Philip Rivers was particularly efficient, going 18-20 for 220 yards and 2 TDs (and 1 INT). Once again Kansas City refused to employ their best player, Jamal Charles, who only had 12 carries and three receptions. Romeo Crennel, people.
