NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

With 1 minute 40 seconds to go and Boston down 2, Marcus Smart aka Cobra made a terrific ‘winning play’ to steal the lead away from Philly in Game 3. The play was decisive as it shifted the lead away from the 76ers and back to the Celtics .
