Everyone expects to see some crazy buzzer beaters throughout March, but they don’t expect to see them come from the Novo Basquete Brasil (NBB), Brazil’s top professional basketball league.
Basquete Cearense and Bauru Basket recently went head-to-head in league action and the game ended in one of the wildest ways we’ve ever seen. With Cearense trailing by three points late in the game, Paulinho Boracini went to the line to shoot two free throws. After sinking his first shot he did something on his second shot that most people would only attempt in a pick-up game and it ended up working out perfectly.
Instead of sinking his second free throw and then immediately fouling his opponent, Boracini took matters into his own hands by purposely missing his second shot, beating his opponent to the loose ball and sinking the buzzer-beater.
The buzzer-beater ended up giving Basquete Cearense an 81-80 victory over Bauru Basket.
