Deron Williams 2OT Buzzer-Beater Caps Exciting Game

A rejuvenated Deron Williams hit a corner three as time expired in double overtime to knock off Boogie Cousins and the Kings, 117-116.


Before the game even got to that point, however, it saw a madcap sequence to end regulation. First, a Marco Bellinelli three with 13 seconds left tied it up.

After a Williams shot with two seconds left gave the lead back to the Mavericks, Cousins went out and did this:

The Kings probably should’ve won this game. They took a four-point lead with 1:47 remaining in the first overtime, before going cold and missing their final four shots of the period. They then took a seven point lead with just 1:20 remaining in the second overtime. But a Deron Williams layup and Dirk Nowitzki three put them down just two, setting the stage for Williams’s heroics.
