Devin Harris Makes Half Court Shot To Beat 76ers

Total Pro Sports – Devin Harris was 1.8 seconds away from costing his New Jersey Nets the game last night in East Rutherford, New Jersey.  That was before he hit a half court prayer that barely beat the clock and gave his Nets the 98-96 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

With just under two seconds left in the game and the score 95-95, Harris fouled 76ers forward Andre Iguodala to put him at the line.  After missing the first free throw, Iguodala hit the second putting Philly up by one.  That’s when Harris used his “miracle performing” ability.  He caught the inbound pass, carried the ball along the baseline to half court where he appeared to have it stripped away by Iguodala.  He regained possession, JUST got the shot off, and hit nothing but net.  The play was reviewed and it counted.  Harris finished with a game-high 39 points and had the following to say about his shot after the game:

“When I saw it go in I didn’t think it was good because the first reaction I got from the referees was that it was no good, so it was hard to get excited…but it was a good feeling [when they told me it counted].”

As for the 76ers, well lets just say they saw it a different way.  At least a disgruntled Andre Miller did:

“It was no good, I mean, we all know that. We can’t sit and argue it and risk the consequences of talking about it. It’s over now…I guess that’s just how our season has been going.”

Apparently Miller isn’t much of a fan of the refs or technology.  Harris earned himself a spot on ESPN’s SportsCenter Highlight of the Night thanks to the play.  You think Stuart Scott was liking it?
