What Had Happened Was: 4/10/17
Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.
A jump ball turned into a collision of bodies all throwing themselves toward the ball as it wiggled and squirmed its way out of each player’s grasp. With mere seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap was able to collect the ball along the baseline, gather it up and then put up a rainbow of a shot that held in the air as if time had stopped.
When it came down it touched nothing but net, and Millsap celebrated fervently — the Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers were going to overtime after the former overcame a 26-point deficit by outscoring the latter 44-18 in the fourth quarter.
Overtime ensued, and Millsap, who scored 22 points, gave Atlanta its first lead of the game when he connected on a shot from way downtown, and the Hawks were able to hold on for an exciting 126-125 win on Sunday.
Kyrie Irving dropped 45 points, and LeBron James, who fouled out in overtime, had a triple-double with 32 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 21 points as Atlanta beat the Cavs for the second time in three days. That means Cleveland has now moved into a tie with Boston for first place in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, although if both teams end up with the same record, Cleveland will earn the top seed by winning the season series between the two.
