Glen Rice Jr. put back dunk sends game to overtime (VIDEO)

Oct 9, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

You know it’s preseason when Wizards rookie Glen Rice Jr. is on the floor at the end of a two-point game.

But it was Rice that made the play sending the Nets and Wizards into overtime. With the Wizards down two and time for a final shot the ball was in the hands of Eric Maynor, who got off an off-balance floater in the lane that hit the back of the rim — the Rice comes flying in for the putback dunk. The play was reviewed by the refs and it was clean.

The Nets went on to win in overtime 111-106 behind 16 points from Tyshawn Taylor and 15 from both Brook Lopez and Mirza Teletovic. It means Jason Kidd wins his coaching debut.
