Based on the heart-pounding game winners we've seen the past few days, it looks like 2014 will be a good year for the NBA!
A few days into the New Year and we've already witnessed Andre Iguodala proving he’s got ice-cold blood running through his veins as he sank a dagger against the Atlanta Hawks. Brooklyn’s Joe “Joe Cool” Johnson reminded us why he’s worth every penny as he delivered against the Oklahoma Thunders, which happened just a day after Kevin Durant made a killer step-back jumper to seal a win against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Mind you, we haven’t even included the two shots that destroyed the Portland TrailBlazers' holidays: Chris Bosh’s game-winning trey last December 29 and Tyreke Evans clutch jumper with only 1.2 seconds left on the clock a few days later.
And because we we will never get tired of watching buzzer beaters, we compiled the 10 Greatest NBA Game Winners in recent memory. See ‘em ice-cold daggers below!
