Being guarded by the best perimeter defender on the Grizzlies, Tony Allen, Chris Paul somehow got separation despite being the smaller player and hit a seemingly impossible shot off glass, leaving 0.1 second, with which the Grizzlies could not tie the game. The Clippers lead the series 2-0 as a result of his heroics.
The shot deprived Memphis of a chance to complete an epic comeback, which could have tied up the series heading into game three in Memphis. Now, the Grizzlies cannot afford to lose at home, or they will find themselves in a nearly insurmountable deficit.
