Music that helps drain that game winning three.

Can anyone tell me the name of this piece of music? (Warning: Splicd/Youtube link of teh oldskool basketball)

It appears on 'Larry Bird: A basketball legend', an NBA home video production from the early nineties (hence the link), though I think this is not the only NBA video I have heard it on from that era. I used to watch these videos religiously, I always loved this composition and would love to track down a recording for posterity.

It sounds like incidental/filler music from a stock library. You could probably get an idea of where it came from by scouring the credits.

NFL Films has had bespoke musical scores produced. It's possible this is something that NBA Home Video (or whatever -- this seems to be from Team Marketing) had composed.

At any rate, my inclination is that this sounds too generic to be anything special.
