June 25, 1999: Avery Johnson hits the go-ahead shot from the corner and the Spurs beat the Knicks 78-77 to win Game 5 and the series 4-1 to win the franchise’s first title. Note: The 1999 Finals were so late because half the season was canceled due to a lockout and the playoffs were pushed back.
June 24, 2006: In the 98th minute of extra time of the Round of 16 in the World Cup, Argentina’s 🇦🇷 Maxi Rodríguez scores on a spectacular volley from outside the penalty area against Mexico 🇲🇽 to put Argentina ahead 2-1. They would hold on to win and advance to the quarterfinals.
Brett Hull scores the game-winner in triple overtime to win the Cup for Dallas over Buffalo. The goal is one of the most controversial goals in NHL History. 1999 Stanley Cup final between the Dallas Stars and Buffalo Sabres featured one of the most controversial calls in NHL history, as Brett Hull clearly scores with his skate in the crease. The referees didn’t seek a review on the ice from the video judge, but NHL officials said that they reviewed the tape. They ruled that since Hull had “continuous possession” of the puck, the goal was legal even though his skate was in the crease. Buffalo Coach Lindy Ruff was clearly not satisfied with the explanation.
