61-Foot Buzzer Beater Seals 'Most Insane Finish In NBA History'

It has been dubbed "the most insane finish in NBA history" - and for good reason too.

When OKC star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored a three-pointer from way down town in the dying embers, he probably thought he'd clinched his team a last-gasp victory against the New Orleans Pelicans.

As the ball sailed into the hoop, the entire home crowd in Oklahoma rose to their feet and cheered as if they'd won.

The camera even panned out to show some fans hugging each other while the Thunder bench leaped out of their seats.

And with 1.4 seconds left on the clock, surely it was game over, right?

Wrong.

Enter DeVonte Graham.

With his team needing a miracle to salvage a victory, the Pelicans guard somehow produced one of the greatest sunk moments of the NBA season to date.

Completely off balance and shooting from his own three-point line in his half, Graham hit a buzzer-beating shot which well and truly silenced the Thunders fans inside Paycom Center.

It seemed like an eternity that the ball was travelling in the air before it finally landed clean in the OKC hoop.

A stunned Graham then wheeled away in celebration as he was mobbed by his Pelicans teammates.

Video of the buzzer-beater quickly emerged on social media and basketball fans around the globe went absolutely nuts for it.

It was heartbreak for the Thunder.

But for Pelicans fans, that one shot will live long in the memory.
