It was a career-making moment for Ryan, whose story was already unbelievable.

Ryan transferred twice in his college career, going from Notre Dame to Vanderbilt to Chattanooga, before going undrafted in the 2020 NBA draft. He would see his first G League minutes in 2021.

What happened in the year between? As Ryan explained it earlier this year, he was driving DoorDash up until getting the call for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Summer League team. And UberEats.

He was also coaching a grassroots basketball team. And his day job: working at a cemetery in Yonkers, New York.

Like many players, Ryan saw his post-college basketball prospects get wiped out by the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic, and he had to wait a year while hustling the whole way before he could play basketball again.

That first opportunity came with the Cavaliers, then Ryan signed with the Denver Nuggets — and was waived two weeks later. He ended up signing with the Nuggets’ G League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Gold, before finally getting an NBA shot with the Boston Celtics as a two-way player.

That time with the Celtics took him all the way to the NBA Finals, though he played only five minutes with the team during the regular season and none in the postseason.

Ryan went undrafted in 2020 and played some G-League minutes back in 2021. Following that brief stint, Ryan found himself out of luck and he was making money by doing DoorDash and Uber Eats deliveries.

Given this trajectory, it is simply incredible that he found his way onto the Lakers’ main roster.

In the video clip down below, Ryan was able to catch a pass near the corner which led to a quick shot at the buzzer.

The shot went in which ultimately tied up the game at 111-111. It was a fantastic three-point shot that had the entire Lakers bench going crazy in jubilation.

He has managed to get himself some decent minutes this season, and while he may not be the most productive player on the court, he has been able to show people that he can make clutch plays when it matters. This was the case last night, as Ryan forced overtime against the Pelicans.

From there, the Lakers took that momentum and went on to win the game. They came away with a huge 120-117 victory which brings them to 2-5 on the season. The Lakers are now on a mini-winning streak and this could be the momentum they need to become a real threat in the West.

Former Celtics guard and fan favorite Matt Ryan keeps adding to his NBA story — and this time, put another buzzer-beater to the highlight reel. 

With the Lakers down three points with 1.3 seconds left in Wednesday’s game against the Pelicans, Ryan nailed a buzzer-beating, corner 3-pointer to send the game to overtime. Los Angeles went on to beat the Pelicans in overtime 120-117 after Ryan’s huge shot.

Of course, Ryan’s story has been well-chronicled. Ryan told MassLive that he was driving DoorDash orders in 2021 while working at a cemetery as he was trying to make a few bucks before starting his professional basketball career.

Ryan said he thought he was going to go play overseas, but stuck it out in the G-League before signing a two-way contract with the Celtics midway through the season. That led to the Finals run as Ryan said he was soaking in every moment.

Ryan continued his hot-shooting ways with the Celtics in Summer League, where he knocked down an improbable 3-pointer to help lift the C’s over the Bucks.
