Just when it looked like the LA Clippers had sealed the win in Game 2, Deandre Ayton stole the show.
Trailing 103-102 with less than one second to go, the Suns pulled off a wild out-of-bounds play, with Jae Crowder delivering the perfect lob pass to Ayton to dunk it home and put the Suns up 2-0 in the series.

After much deliberation, the officials added time on the clock, giving the Clippers a chance to go the length of the court, but Paul George's triple fell short, giving the Suns a remarkable 104-103 win.
Suns point guard Chris Paul was loving it, watching the action from home!
