Ron Ron's Redemption

21 seconds.  That's how much time was left on the shot clock as Ron Artest launched an ill-advised three pointer which drew nothing but iron.  The Suns rebounded the ball, and scored a ridiculous off glass 30 foot 3 pointer to tie the score at 101 with 3.5 seconds left.  If the LAkers were to have lost this game, Ron Artest would undoubtedly have been the goat.

But all that changed in 1.1 seconds.  That's how much time remained on the clock when Ron Ron rebounded Kobe Bryant's attempt at a game winner.  In almost a frame by frame duplication of Pau Gasol's tip in winner in Oklahoma City, Artest re-wrote his game 5 narrative.  We'll have much more on the game in its entirety, but for now, enjoy Ron Ron's redemption.
