Jerry West hits a miraculous 60-foot shot to force overtime, but the Knicks somehow recover to win the game and take a 2-1 series lead in the NBA Finals.
Dave DeBusschere made a clutch shot to seemingly give the Knicks a much needed win in Los Angeles. But on the inbound pass, with time expiring, Jerry West made one of the craziest shots in NBA history to force overtime. Remember, there was no three-point line back then, so the long distance heave only counted for two points.
The Knicks collected themselves after regulation and held the Lakers to 4 points in overtime to win 111-108.
