Ex-Wizard Markieff Morris throws away Lakers' chance to clinch NBA Finals
Ex-magician Markieff Morris missed the chance to win the final, which originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Game 5 of the NBA Finals was one for the books, and a game the Miami Heat 111-108 won against the Los Angeles Lakers to expand the series and keep their championship hopes alive.
In the end, Jimmy Butler's 35-point triple-double was enough to stop a 40-point, 13-rebound, and 7-assist attempt by LeBron James, but the game could have been a Lakers victory, so to speak, in the end several Change of leadership. Why couldn't the Lakers take back the lead?
After Butler sank two clutch free throws to give Miami a point lead by 16.8 seconds, James put the ball on the court to get the Lakers back into position, having previously made only two possessions. But as he drove into a crowd of Heat players, he threw the ball at a wide-open Danny Green who rattled a three-pointer off the front of the rim. Former Wizards forward Markieff Morris grabbed the offensive rebound for the Lakers and tried to throw the ball under the edge for Anthony Davis to get a starting lineup, but the pass was, well ... see for yourself:
Morris' pass was spot on. Miami security guard Tyler Herro threw down two free throws to increase the Heat's lead to three in just 2.2 seconds. Without time out to get the ball in half place, the Lakers never looked good to tie the game.
Instead of claiming an NBA final victory in their 'Black Mamba' jerseys in honor of Kobe Bryant, the Lakers must speak up again against a very persistent and determined heat team. While LA will try to leave the moment behind and focus on ending the heat in six games, Twitter users like her are enjoying the moment.
