Miami Heat

On this date in NBA history: Ray Allen sinks game-tying 3-pointer in 2013 NBA Finals

June 18, 2013 - Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals

The San Antonio Spurs were just seconds away from the fifth NBA title in franchise history, as they led the Miami Heat by three points late in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Then Ray Allen happened.

With 5.2 seconds remaining in regulation, Allen knocked down the tying 3-pointer to send the game into overtime. Not only is this 3-pointer one of the defining moments in Allen's storied career, it is one of the biggest shots in league history.

Miami would go on to win Game 6 and secured its second consecutive NBA title by winning Game 7 over the Spurs.
