Default Cliff Levingston Hawks shot/miss, 1988

The play was never drawn up this way. The ball was supposed to go to Dominique Wilkins. He was intended to take the final shot.

It never happened. Atlanta Hawks fans still remember Cliff Levingston’s running left-handed hook that fell off the side of the rim.

“That would have changed the whole outcome of the NBA that year,’’ admits Levingston. “It would have also vaulted my career.’’

The play came on May 20, 1988, at the Omni with the Hawks leading the Eastern Conference semifinals three games to two. One more win against the Celtics and Atlanta would go to its first conference finals.
