Within seconds of the Spurs' DANNY GREEN sinking his 23rd three-pointer of the NBA Finals last night, during the Spurs 114-104 win over the Heat in Game 5, Twitter was demanding a highlight -- not the clip of Green sinking the trey, but a brief reaction shot of RAY ALLEN, on the bench, looking absolutely shattered as the basket fell. (Did some Boston fans take a certain amount of glee in his reaction, even though Allen set that record in as a Celtic, in 2008, against the Lakers? Yes, yes we did.)

It took less than five minutes for the internet to get its wish. By my count, the first to get a .gif online was Twitter's @cjzero . . .

. . . but that was quickly followed by Buzzfeed and Bleacher Report, each of whom had the clip online within a few ticks of the clock:
