Flashback Friday: Robert Horry Buzzer Beater Over Sacramento Kings

The playoffs are currently in full swing as the first round match-ups are coming to a close. There has already been a record number of overtime games and nail-biting finishes have been the norm. In honor of the late game heroics that have taken place this post season, we take a look back at one of the greatest shots in Laker playoff history.

With the Lakers down 99-97 and in danger of falling behind the Sacramento Kings 3-1 in the 2002 Western Conference finals, Robert Horry hit a three-point dagger as time expired to give the Lakers the much needed win.

The play started with Kobe Bryant driving to the lane and throwing up a wild shot, which missed. Shaquille O’Neal managed to tip the ball back towards the basket, but missed once again. Players continued to scramble for the ball until it was swatted out to a conveniently situated Horry at the top of the three=point line.

Horry would hit the three-pointer to even up the series as it headed back to Sacramento. The Lakers would ultimately win the series 4-3 in what many consider to be one of the greatest series of all-time, and moved onto the Finals, where they would become champions once again.

    This is a crock of BS. That 3 pointer was reviewed later and it was determined to be made after the game clock ran out. This ultimately turned into a rule change mandating that all last minute shots be reviewed. There was also an investigation into at least one referee for illegal gambling and fixing. The Kings, by everyone’s admission, got burned BIG TIME.

      Are you fucking stupid? You can clearly see the ball leaving his hand with time on the clock. You sound like a bitter ass kings fan.

  • Truth for life

    The kings came back and won game 5 taking a 3-2 series lead . David Stern was worried the leagues cash cow was about to be eliminated by the small market kings and rightfully so as the kings had a better team . David Stern ordered Dick Bevetta and Bob Delaney to manipulate game 6 to make sure LA won at all costs . Still to this day its the worst officiated game in NBA history . The kings got robbed

    Robert, did his thing in that game. I was so worried about losing and then clutch
    Horry let it fly. I couldn’t believe it, that was an unbelievable shot. Every time see it I want to scream Rob you’re the man.
