The Detroit Pistons managed to get a win in one of the coolest ways possible Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors.

Moments after a potential game winning alley-oop was blocked, Detroit managed to inbound the ball, and Reggie Bullock scored with no time left on the clock.

It was an emotional rollercoaster for Raptors fans in the stands. One moment they’re celebrating an incredible block, and the next they’re silent in disbelief. Watch the amazing ending below.

For anybody who has played basketball or been involved with the sport, that is about as brutal as it can get for the losing team. Detroit inbounded the ball with 1.2 seconds left on the clock. That’s essentially no time. Your options are to hopefully catch a clean pass and then fire up a shot. (RELATED: LeBron James Signs With The Lakers)

There is zero margin for error. Yet, Detroit pulled it off.

Trust me when I say that I understand the disappointment of Toronto and their fans. I had something happen to me once in a game that was practically identical, and I was in disbelief.

With only 1.2 seconds left on the clock, heading to overtime shouldn’t even be a question. What an absolutely wild ending. I don’t think we’ll see anything topping that anytime soon.
