Watch: Former Kentucky Star Tyler Ulis Nails Ridiculous Game-Winning 3-Pointer

Tyler Ulis surrounded by teammates after game winner.

Phoenix Suns rookie guard Tyler Ulis might have capped off the wildest finish in the NBA this season.

Ulis' fadeaway three-pointer in front of his team's bench as time expired gave the Suns an improbably 109-106 win over the Boston Celtics.

After Isaiah Thomas' free throw put the Celts up 106-104 with 11.9 to play, Suns guard Eric Bledsoe drove to the rim and tied the game with four seconds left.

Then, after Thomas lost the handle in the backcourt, Ulis scooped up the loose ball and hit the game-winner.

Two of the Suns Kentucky guys came through in the clutch.

Seriously, you can't even imagine a game ending like that. It is such a crazy sequence.

For Ulis, this was a performance to remember. Not only did he bury the memorable three-pointer, but he scored 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting and dished out five assists in 33 minutes off the bench.
