Watch Marc Gasol hit a game-winning 3 then strut like Conor McGregor
With less than a minute to play and the Memphis Grizzlies trailing by two against the Los Angeles Clippers, big man Marc Gasol helped the Grizzlies come up with a big stop to regain possession. But Memphis still needed a big shot either to force overtime or somehow pull out a win in an incredibly exciting game.
Gasol answered the bell with a huge 3-pointer from the corner — then channeled his inner Conor McGregor with a victory strut to halfcourt:
That celebration is McGregor's go-to move, of course, as he most recently demonstrated before UFC 205:
McGregor in turn is paying homage to WWE's Vince McMahon, as Triple H was happy to point out this week:
Either way, Gasol pulling a McGregor pulling a McMahon is a beautiful thing.
The Grizzlies beat the Clippers 111-107 to move to 6-5, handing Los Angeles just its second loss in 2016-17. Gasol finished with 26 points (including 4-for-5 shooting on 3s), six rebounds and six assists. He now has 16 made 3-pointers on the season compared to just 12 in the rest of his career combined.
