Today in Sports History: June 18

In 2013, Ray Allen helped lead the Miami Heat to victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Allen scored a three-pointer which took Game 6 into overtime and allowed the Heat to win 103-100. The shot is widely regarded as one of the most significant plays in NBA History. The Heat won NBA Championship in Game 7 and Allen had become an NBA Champion for the second time in his career. Allen had ten NBA All-Star designations plus one gold medal with the 2000 United States men’s basketball team. He holds NBA records in career three-point field goals made in both the regular and postseason and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2018.
