Video: Monta Ellis Does It Again With First Quarter Buzzer Beater
Four days ago Rant Sports writer Alejandro Aviles wrote an excellent piece found here on the best clutch players in the NBA and the Golden State Warriors Monta Ellis is considered to be the best clutch player.
It isn’t just the closing minutes of games that Ellis is able to make clutch plays with the clock winding down. He proved that against the Washington Wizards in the first quarter. With 1.9 seconds left, Ellis received the ball near the sideline just over the half court line.
He was able to get by the defense of Maurice Evans, jumped off one foot and hit the buzzer beating three pointer to end the quarter.
Ellis has done it against the Miami Heat:
New Jersey Nets:
Los Angeles Lakers:
Ellis doesn’t necessarily have to be draining a three at the buzzer either as against the Minnesota Timberwolves he received a baseball past didn’t need to dribble, laid the ball up and scored just as the buzzer sounded to end the first quarter.
