Harris's Miracle Resuces Nets

NETS 98
76ERS 96

Talk about a thriller! The struggling New Jersey Nets stole one from the Philadelphia 76ers in the final second after it appeared that Philly was on its way to handing New Jersey another disappointing loss.

After Andre Iguodala sank two free throws to give the 76ers a 96-95 lead, Nets point guard David Harris took the inbounds with just a second to go. Harris got to mid court and was able to get off the shot. It appeared that Harris was fouled, as he was hit on the arm while he was shooting. The ball glided through the air and dropped right through the hoop for the three point score.

Officals reviewed the play in order to confirm that Harris got the shot off before the buzzer sounded. The call was upheld, and the Nets won the game. WATCH TREMENDOUS VIDEO!!

Before New Jersey could even come out with the spectacular victory, they had to come back from a 31-19 deficit in the first quarter. The Nets rolled out 32 points in the second to tie the game at 51 going into the halftime. Harris was a big part of this comeback as well.

Overall, Harris had 39 points, two rebounds and eight assists in the game. Only Vince Carter was the second highest scoring Net with 10 points on the night.

The Nets slim playoff hopes stay alive; the Nets are stil a half game ahead of the New York Knicks at 25-32.
