Two Improbable Finishes

Reggie Miller did it in the 90s and T-Mac did it for this generation. Finishes that should have signaled defeat for their teams and yet still making an improbable comeback.

Reggie Miller's 8 point outburst - It was the Eastern conference playoffs and the Knicks were leading by 6 points with only 18.7 ticks left. Miraculously, Miller will score eight successive points in that stretch to get a win for the Pacers. Here is a short video of the his two successive threes to tie the game.

McGrady 13 points in 35 seconds - Now this is a feat I couldn't do even if I am all alone in a gym.

Please read the following articles as it reflects upon how incredible finishes in sports are life lessons for us.
