The Spurs actually got all of their big three quality looks to get the win on the final possession — Manu Ginobili had a clean look at a three that clanged off, Tony Parker missed his trademark rainbow floater, and Tim Duncan missed an elbow fadeaway.

As Sebastian Pruiti explains over at NBA Playbook, when the play starts Lamar Odom steps off McDyess to allow Ron Artest to keep up with Ginobili off a double screen. Smart. But McDyess uses the space created to get inside Odom so he has position for the tip in to win it. Watch.
