Poole’s shot not only woke up the Warriors fans but Twitter came alive as well. Fans following Spel 5 of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and Celtics were just as stunned as everyone else was.

Golden State needed to dig deep to salvage their brutal third quarter. Boston outscored Golden State 35-24 in the third and got back into the game. Boston ended the first half 0-for-12 from beyond the arc and then hit their next eight threes in a row.

Poole also hit a buzzer-beater at the end of the third quarter in Spel 2 against the Celtics. Golden State would hold on for the win in that game.
