Denver’s Randy Foye hits ridiculous leaning game-winning three (VIDEO)

Feb 4, 2014, 2:28 AM EDT

Just seconds before the Clippers’ Matt Barnes had drained a three off a pass and a nice bit of improvisation from J.J. Redick. The Clippers had a two-point lead and looked like they were going to escape Mile High with a win.

Then Randy Foye happened.

Whatever Nuggets coach Brian Shaw drew up in the huddle I’m pretty sure it looked nothing like the mess of a play that happened, one where Foye had to take the ball and dribbling left across the top of the arc shoot a leaning three pointer over Blake Griffin — and he drained it.

That may be the best game winner of the season so far. Final score Nuggets 116, Clippers 115.

    Wild shot, reminiscent of Kobe’s from the same spot a few years back that banked in to beat Miami in that both Foye and Kobe were almost shooting the ball back over their right shoulders as they beat the buzzer. Foye swished it though, sick elevation too.

    I wonder how good Foye would be if his heart was in the right place…

    LOL at the announcer’s “Oh Danny Boy” take off.

    Two things I loved from this video.

    1.) in the shot from the crowd, there’s a guy in a blue jacket that throws his hands up in disgust when the shot goes up. And then throws his hands up in jubilation when he realizes it goes in. Hilarious.

    2.) the announcer singing Randy Foyer to the tune of Danny Boy was awesome.

    Oh yeah, awesome shot, Nate Robinson should be proud. We all know how Nate loves the contested three from well beyond the three point line.

    As a Clippers fan this is hurtful, but that was an amazing shot! Maybe the Clippers should have made an effort to keep Foye.

    Great game…bummed to come out on the wrong end of it.

    At least Denver won a title this year……wait….they didn’t?

    They acted like it was a game 7 game winner……not just one of 41 home games.

    Still….great game.

    That was a hell of a shot.
