For "Big Shot Rob," this may have been the biggest shot of all.
Robert Horry drilled a 3-pointer with 5.8 seconds left in overtime to give the San Antonio Spurs an nerve-jangling 96-95 victory over the Detroit Pistons in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
With control of the series teetering with each possession, Horry added yet another memorable clip to his career-long postseason hightlight reel and tilted the title heavily toward the Spurs, who head home with a 3-2 lead and the security of the next two games on their floor.
Known as "Big Shot Rob" for clutch shooting that has given him five championship rings, Horry scored all 21 of his points in the final 17-plus minutes, shaking off a painful shoulder injury.
