Nuggets’ Randy Foye delivers dagger to former team

It’s an indescribable feeling for any sports professional when he or she makes the final play to hand their former team a loss. Ask Denver Nuggets guard Randy Foye after he delivered a 3-point dagger to the Los Angeles Clippers in a 116-115 victory at the Pepsi Center on Monday night.

Foye played two seasons with the Clippers before the team opted to not re-sign him following the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season. Afterwards, Foye spent one year with the Utah Jazz before joining Denver last summer as part of a three-team trade.

Trailing by two with just 6.2 seconds left, Foye heaved a 3-point shot over Clippers forward Blake Griffin about five feet from behind the arc. After the shot found its mark, Foye’s teammates joined him on the floor with jubilation.

Foye was just 1-for-6 from 3-point range prior to the final play, but the seventh attempt would be Denver’s saving grace.

"I couldn't hit one all night," said Foye, who finished the game with 14 points. "But I hit the one that counted."
