Hawks’ AJ Griffin delivers buzzer-beater with 0.5 seconds to stun Bulls
The Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls faced off on Sunday night and had one of the craziest finishes of the 2022-23 NBA regular season so far.
The game was played on the wire in overtime. With 0.5 seconds left in overtime, Bulls guard DeMar DeRozan was fouled beyond the three-point line and earned three free throws. He had all three shots to put the Bulls up, 122-121.

The Hawks called timeout and were able to move the ball beyond half court. As both teams made substitutions, Hawks forward Jalen Johnson kicked the ball out and Atlanta put their team out with 0.5 seconds on the clock.
Johnson somehow got a high enough lob for AJ Griffin to jump, grab and shoot the ball into the paint. Griffin had to turn around to catch the ball and, in the air, he shot it and made the basket.
