Harper was rather quiet in the first four minutes of the extra period, but, following a made basket by Lessort to cut Valencia's lead to 93-96, the EuroLeague rookie showed that he thrives in the big moments. With 52 seconds remaining, he once again had Lessort defending him but this time decided to hesitate before going for a reverse layup at the rim, which dropped. Valencia now led by five, 93-98, with 47 seconds left on the clock.
Valencia head coach Alex Mumbru decided to bring Harper out of the game following his two-pointer, instead preferring to have better defensive options on the court, but James Nunnally hit a three-pointer to bring Partizan back into it, 96-98. A timeout was called and, with Valencia needing a basket, Harper was back in.
As the game reached the final 10 seconds of overtime, a miscued pass by Webb saw Bojan Dubljevic turn the ball over, leaving Nunnally with the ball in his hands in his own backcourt. Yet, Xabi Lopez-Arostegui was alert to it and poked the ball away, with Dubljevic landing on it before quickly finding Harper, who was fouled by Punter. That was Punter's fifth foul, meaning he had been ejected from the game, but he still tried to get in Harper's head before the free throws. It didn't work, though, as the Valencia guard showed that he has ice in his veins, hitting both free throws without cracking a smile. For Harper, it was just another day in the office.
