Game 6 of the 2013 NBA finals saw Ray Allen make a spectacular 3 pointer shot that saw the San Antonio Spurs lose to Allen’s team; the Heat. All this happened with only a few seconds on the clock making the game one of the most iconic and personal best of Ray Allen’s career. Those few moments when the ball was dangling around the ball was the most anxious few minutes NBA fans have had to endure and when the three-pointer was in, it seemed something like a miracle, like all Ray Allen’s training throughout his career was intended to make him make that one shot. It was nothing short of magical.
