Video: David West throws perfect, buzzer-beating pass to Gerald Green

Last night’s Game 2 between the Pacers and the Hawks was relegated to NBA TV. So those with basic cable missed this David West-to-Gerald Green Hail Mary at the end of the third quarter.

That play gave the Pacers an 88-76 lead. Indiana held on to beat Atlanta 113-98, taking a 2-0 series lead, in a game that featured several poster-worthy dunks, including this Roy Hibbert-over-Ivan Johnson gem:

The Hawks host the Pacers Saturday night on ESPN. The series returns to NBA TV next Monday for Game 4.
