The Islanders were down by 24 points when they got the ball with eight seconds remaining and nothing to play for outside of a +22.5-point cover for their bettors.

Ross Williams made those bettors really sweat, waiting until the very last moment to take a step-back three that would hit nothing but net with straight zeros on the clock.

Williams was recently in the news for his relationship with Willie Green, the New Orleans Pelicans head coach and a father figure to Williams, but bettors will now remember him for cashing their tickets at the last possible second.
