Call Of The Game: Holy Moly

The voice of the Trail Blazers, Brian Wheeler, delivers the Call of the Game.

An already unbelievable series between the Trail Blazers and Rockets, just got even better. Portland was down by two, 114-112, and the seconds were ticking away. Rip City was in danger of heading back to Houston all tied up at two games apiece ... until the wildest possession of the 2013-14 season occurred. Nicolas Batum rose up from downtown with 33 seconds remaining. Only it hit nothing but iron and Houston's Jeremy Lin grabbed the rebound. Game over, right? Wrong. Mo Williams never gave up on the play, stole it from Lin, and eventually would up with the ball in his hands and feet set beyond the arc. Like the marksman he is, Williams delivered from distance. It wasn't enough to win the game in regulation, but it was enough to eventually force overtime where the Trail Blazers walked off the Moda Center court victorious, 123-120.
