Happy weekend everyone. Hope you guys are enjoying your day off. In case you missed it, here are your plays of the day today. Yes, today we have two plays, from two of the best players of our generation: Chris Paul and Dirk Nowitzki.  Both of them made game winning shots for their teams last night in wins that both teams needed for their playoff runs.  Let’s start with Paul.

Chris Paul has immediately transformed the Clippers from the other team in LA to a serious playoff contender. Last night, the Clippers should have had an easy win against the Portland Trail Blazers, as the team was missing their star Lamarcus Aldridge.  However, the Clippers were down the whole game, until the end, when Paul took over.

 

Pretty good play by Paul there.  But Dirk tops him here I have to say.  Nowitzki is know for his ridiculous 1 legged fade away jumper, and he showed it off last night. Upon release, it didn’t even look close, but of course, Dirk had other plans. Check it out.

 

One of the best pure shooters in NBA history, Nowitzki adds to the epicness with the Jordan tongue wag at the end. What a shot. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend! Did you see a better play last night? Let us know in the comments!
