IN BRIEF: Something that kills the chances of a good outcome. This is mainly said when competition is involved.

IN BASKETBALL:
-A completed buzzer-beater at the end of the game to take the lead,
-a field goal or free throw made for a team with just enough time for the opposite team to not produce the win or
-if the lead is completely out of reach, "2:00 left" is automatically the dagger.

IN FOOTBALL:
-A completed touchdown, field-goal or a safety at the end of the game to take the lead,
-a touchdown, field goal or safety made for a team with just enough time for the opposite team to not produce the win or
-if the lead is completely out of reach, "2:00 left" is automatically the dagger.
EXAMPLE: Mo Williams shot the dagger in Cleveland's win against Atlanta in Game 4. Just so you know, Cleveland swept Atlanta in that game, too.

“It isn’t real,”
"Why did you stab me with a dagger."
"I gave you love."
