For the second time this week, a basketball player in Europe made an unbelievable buzzer-beater to force overtime in a do-or-die playoff game. 

First, a guy in France hit a shot from the behind the backboard. Now a guy in Spain made a shot that might be just as impressive. 

With less than a second on the clock, Ioannis Bourousis of Laboral Kutxa Baskonia caught a full-court pass and put up a prayer as he fell to the floor. 

Baskonia went on to beat Barcelona in overtime and avoid elimination. They’ll play again on Friday.
