Rudy Gay’s game-winner comes after the buzzer as Pacers beat Grizzlies (VIDEO)

Jan 21, 2013, 5:51 PM EDT

Rudy Gay banked home a shot that would have won the game for the Grizzlies on Monday against the Pacers, had he gotten it off before the final buzzer sounded.

He did not, and as a result, the Pacers got one of their best road wins of the season in Memphis by a final of 82-81.

Gay didn’t have a lot to work with, receiving the ball a good five feet behind the three-point line after having to run up from the low block to get the pass. With just 1.4 seconds remaining, he didn’t have nearly enough time to do all that he needed to in order to get off a credible shot attempt before time expired, thanks to almost perfect defense in that situation from Paul George.

    Paul George is a monster. This guy will be getting max money very soon. Most improved player maybe? I still like Vasquez for that…

      Paul George wasn’t that bad last year so he’ll have a harder time winning it.

      It’ll either be Vasquez, Hickson, or Brewer if he keeps playing the way he has been.

        You’re right, he wasn’t at all. But he damn sure wasn’t dropping triple doubles and game winners (I don’t think). I like all your picks.

      Good call. Guy is forgotten about but definitely deserves some thought.
