In a game that will go down in the annals of basketball history, Memphis Grizzlies guard Ziaire Williams hit an incredible 79-foot full-court buzzer-beater against the Phoenix Suns on January 22, 2023. The shot, which came at the end of the third quarter, was the longest-made shot in league history and gave the Grizzlies a much-needed spark heading into the final frame. It's very rare for a shot of that length to get anywhere near the basket, let alone go in for a score.
Unfortunately, despite Williams' incredible efforts, the Grizzlies lost the game 112-110, but his shot will still be remembered and talked about for years to come. The moment was caught on camera by the NBA's official TikTok account, where it quickly went viral with over 21K views and 134 comments. Fans and commentators alike were in awe of Williams' incredible feat, with many calling it the greatest buzzer-beater in NBA history despite the loss.
