After Chris Paul hit a series of jumpers to give the Los Angeles Clippers a 101-98 lead with just 9.3 seconds to play, the Portland Trail Blazers called on Nicolas Batum. Batum got the ball from LaMarcus Aldridge, went around his screen and hit a three-pointer to tie the game with 5.3 seconds left. Paul missed a jumper on the other end and the game went to overtime.

The Trail Blazers went on to win in overtime 116-112.
