March Madness is a monicker typically applied only to college basketball, but last night there was certainly some March Madness – or perhaps March Magic – going on in the NBA.
Five games came down to shots in the final seconds, and four of those games ended up being decided in the favor of the team taking that last second shot.
Among the shot-takers and shot-makers: reigning MVP Derrick Rose, whose jumper lifted the Bulls over the Bucks; and certain rookie of the year Kyrie Irving, who drove and finished against the Nuggets with only a few ticks left on the clock.
Not to be outdone, Jordan Farmer also executed some last-second heroics for the Nets over the Clippers, and John Salmons (with a big assist from rookie Isaiah Thomas) led the Kings over the Hornets as the clock wound down.
Here are the videos of all four NBA game-winners from last night:

For some reason, I found myself wanting to hear Johnny Most announce this play. Anyone else?
