19. Tyreke’s Half Court Winner: Back in the 2010 the Sacramento Kings were playing against the Memphis Grizzlies. With 22 seconds left in the game the Kings were trailing 95-96, but thanks to a Tyreke Evan’s steal and fast break dunk it seemed the Kings were about win, but O.J. Mayo thought different.
The Grizzlies then got the ball, and with under 2 seconds remaining Mayo hit a running fadeaway shot giving the lead back to Memphis 98-97. It seemed the Kings were about blow another game, but Tyreke will then cause a storm to erupt in the arena.
Once taking the inbound pass from DeMarcus Cousins, Evans throws the ball up from over half court and making the shot giving the Kings the win 100-98 (video here). Even to this day, no one can argue that Evan’s shot was one of the best and astonishing finishes in a Sacramento Kings win.
