Best Game You've Attended:
Game 2 of the 1999 NBA Western Conference Finals, May 31, 1999, when Sean Elliott hit a corner 3-point shot against the Portland Trail Blazers, giving the Spurs a 1-point lead with 9 seconds left to play in regulation. The pass was nearly stolen by Blazer Stacey Augmon, and Elliott caught the ball within an inch of the sideline (narrowly avoiding going out of bounds), and had to stay on his tiptoes rather than planting his feet. When Elliot released the ball, it just avoided the outstretched arms of 6'11" Rasheed Wallace. This play, aka "The Memorial Day Miracle", shifted the momentum of the series to the Spurs, who went on to win their first NBA championship.
