Tobias Harris' dunk as time expired Friday gave the Orlando Magic a stunning win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, 103-102. Orlando swingman Arron Afflalo said he'd never seen "a dunk game-winner with no time on the clock," but Magic fans sure have.

Harris' big finish called to mind a similar one Dwight Howard made for Orlando almost exactly seven years prior in a win against the San Antonio Spurs. Here's a look at how the plays stack up against one another:
