Play of the day?

"I was in the right spot at the right time; we talk about that a lot," Green told the newspaper. "And I was just looking for someone to tap the ball so I could catch it. I stood off to the side and watched. I was thinking about coming back closer to the ball, but I stayed right where I was and the ball found me. It would have been a great play had we won."
It was a fine play either way, but Green speaks truth. Hail Mary shots don't mean much when you've just lost your second straight game in overtime.
