Vince Carter missed a three-point attempt against the Spurs last night as the buzzer expiring. The Mavericks trailed 92-91 and the shot could have won the game.

Those are facts. Right here, I'm going to try to cover all the major facts about those last few seconds in the AT&T Center before giving my opinion on what happened.



Manu Ginobili took the foul the Spurs had to give with 5.6 seconds left on the clock.

Vince had hit two of his last three shots: a made three with 1:54 left (wide open from the corner), a missed three with 3:34, and a made layup with 4:01 (very difficult scoop shot, I thought it should have been a foul too).

Mayo inbounded the ball to Carter, while Brandan Wright came from the elbow to set a pick on Kawhi Leonard. Wright's man, Splitter, and Leonard switch with around 3.5 seconds left on the clock.

Carter takes a dribble left, crosses over right, and shoots a three with 2.5 seconds on the clock. Splitter contested well, forcing Carter to fade on the shot.

The shot hit the side of the rim at 0.8 and bounced out.
