Is there a more exciting shot in the NBA than the buzzer beater? Every sport has its most awesome moments, like the walk-off home run in baseball, the Hail Mary in football, and the penalty shot in hockey, and basketball's game-winning shots as the clock winds down rank right up there with the best of them.
The 2019-20 season will have its fair share of game-winners, and just two weeks into the season, Jae Crowder had already delivered an amazing buzzer beater to lead the Grizzlies past the Nets in overtime. Even shots that aren't technically buzzer beaters can still provide the same thrills, like Turkish guard Furkan Korkmaz's corner 3 with less than a second remaining, which proved to be the game-winner for the 76ers against the Blazers.
