VIDEO: Kendrick Perkins buzzer-beater sends Game 2 to overtime

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

With 12 seconds left, the Memphis Grizzlies needed a stop to secure the Game 2 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. They had their stop when Russell Westbrook took a potential winning 3-point shot from the left wing and misfired on the attempt. Secure the rebound and you've stolen home court advantage.

But Kendrick Perkins -- yes, that Kendrick Perkins -- managed to tie the game and send it into overtime. He grabbed the offensive board and put in the tying shot at the buzzer. Does this justify Scott Brooks' insistence to play Perkins extended minutes? Of course not. But it's incredible that he saved this game.
