Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mario Chalmers hit probably the least graceful game-winner with the clock running down in a deadlocked game against the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night. 

It definitely wasn't the play he intended as he recovered the loose ball with one second remaining in the fourth quarter, but the series of absurd events was enough to lift the home team to a 103-101 victory. 

Chalmers wasn't just the last-second hero as he tallied a team-high 25 points and eight assists through the match.
