-Spanish baller Pau Gasol saved the game to secure a Los Angeles Lakers win over the Boston Celtics Thursday night. In the final moments of overtime Boston’s Ray Allen rebounded a shot that teammate Paul Pierce had rimmed out of the basket, and threw it up for the win, a win that Gasol ultimately denied them.  The power forward blocked Allen’s shot just in the nick of time.

“That shot that Ray Allen took was good, in my opinion,” stated Lakers coach Mike Brown, according to ESPN. “But Pau did not stop playing until he heard the horn, and he came up with the big block.” Gasol finished the game with 25 points, 14 rebounds and, of course, the game saver.
