The league will continue to have elite talent each season as players improve and the game becomes more competitive. The pro basketball reference officially recorded 14 buzzer beaters for the entire 2021-22 regular season and we already have 10 with at least another four months to play. Buzzer beaters are one of the best moments in basketball when your team celebrates at the end. Next, let’s take a look at the 5 best buzzer beaters of the 2022-23 season so far.

With Summer Beats in mind, the last one we saw was last night, as the Detroit Piston Saddiq Bey hit a three-pointer for a walk-off win over the Golden State Warriors. We’ll give Bey our honorable mention on this list. It was an impressive shot, but not enough to make our top five.

The top 5 buzzer beaters of the 2022-23 season so far

5. Kevon Looney 1/2/23 v Atlanta Hawks

Earlier this week, on Monday, a three-pointer from Dontae DiVincenzo tied the game 121-121 and the Warriors went OT with the Hawks. Golden State has found a way to win basketball games while Steph Curry is out with a shoulder injury. Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 54 points in the game but missed an attempt to win the game with a three.

Luckily, Warriors center Kevon Looney was in the perfect position to tap the ball in just before the buzzer was over and hand Golden State a narrow 143-141 win. That shot gave the Warriors an honorable mention on a five-game winning streak, which they lost last night to the buzzer-beater hit by Saddiq Bey.

KEVON LOONEY GAME WINNER.

4. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 12/19/22 v Portland Trail Blazers

A few weeks ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Portland Trail Blazers were 121-121 with 3.2 seconds left. OKC had possession and had a great chance to get a useful shot. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has another breakout season for the Thunder this season, scoring (30.9) points per game. With 3.2 on the clock, SGA took the inbounds pass and made a spin move that left his defender in the dark. This left him with a wide-open two-point try that he made look easy in the crucial point of the game.

3. Andrew Nembhard 11/28/22 @ LA Lakers

Back in November, the Indiana Pacers made a 17-point comeback, defeating LeBron James and the LA Lakers. His team was previously 403-1 when they held a 17-point lead in fourth place, and the Pacers handed him another loss that night. Two points back, Myles Turner attempted a three-point shot but missed, and Tyrese Haliburton corralled the rebound. He was choked by the defense and whipped the ball to rookie Andrew Nembhard.

With seconds to get a shot, Nembhard calmly dropped a game-winning three-pointer in the face of LeBron himself, handing Indiana an epic 116-115 win.

2. Kyrie Irving 12/16/22 @ Toronto Raptors

The Brooklyn Nets’ 12-game winning streak came to an end last night, but their month of December was the most successful month in franchise history, going 11-1. Every win was special and gave the Nets the momentum they needed. Brooklyn and Toronto were 116-116 with just seconds left and the Nets had possession. A clip from the Nets media team showed head coach Jacque Vaughn intending to play the game for Kevin Durant.

Durant insisted it would work better with Irving, and he trusted the players. Irving took Ben Simmons’ inbounds pass and hit a step-back three over Toronto’s Fred VanVleet to give Brooklyn the 119-116 win.

What you’ve all been waiting for…

1. De’Aaron Alaska Green Light Blog 11/5/22 @ Orlando Magic

In early November, the Kings were in a shootout with the Orlando Magic. Sacramento fell apart at the end of OT and let the magic come back in the final seconds. A four-point lead for the Kings turned into a tie within 12 seconds. The game was close to double OT, but not if De’ Aaron Alaska Green Light Blog had anything to say about it.

There were six six seconds left on the clock and Sacramento didn’t have a timeout. Alaska Green Light Blog took the inbounds pass and dribbled across the court without hesitation. He stopped right by the Orlando Magic logo and hit a 30-foot three that won the game and broke the hearts of Magic fans at home.
