Sometimes in life, we look for people to make miracles happen. Devin Harris is now one of those people. The Philadelphia 76ers appeared to be cruising to an easy victory over the New Jersey Nets as Andre Igoudala hit a free throw to give the 76ers, a one point lead.
The Nets were out of timeouts with 1.8 seconds left. The ball was inbounded to Harris who originally bobbled the ball and appeared to be fouled by Igoudala. However, he hoisted up a prayer and buried a three pointer in the Nets 98-96 victory.
Although it appeared that Harris could not even have enough time to blink his eyelids and turn off the lights, he buried an impossible shot. With shades of Milt Pilacio in the background, he created a miracle out of nothing. After much discussion by many of the referees it was called good and that the Nets had won. 76ers head coach Tony DiLeo looked like he needed Life Alert after that shot went through.
Vince Carter appeared to have given up hope before Harris’s miracle. Carter almost appeared to be auditioning for Mamma Mia 2 after celebrating the winner. It’s the highest Vince has jumped since the 2000 Olympics.
Devin Harris can create miracles and honestly what could he do for an encore, he could
->Create peace in the Middle East
->Create a SUV that drives like a sedan
->Get the economy back on track
->Create a diet soda that does not taste like it is diet
->Deliver me a pizza in twenty minutes or less
->and have Penelope Cruz win an Oscar
Well, the last one happened without Devin’s help (Scarlett Johansson helped there) but to only prove a theory sometimes miracles do happen. I’ll just tell Devin Harris right now to stay out of the clergy; he does not want the stigma that comes from that and the two bad Tom Hanks movies that come from it.
