Watch One Of The Craziest Game-Winning Shots in NBA History
A jump ball. A missed shot. A last second save and a Hail Mary. These final seconds had it all.
The Bucks were down two points in the final seconds against the Heat last night, and things looked close to hopeless. The Bucks’ Jerryd Bayless would have to beat Michael Beasley of the Heat at a jump ball, and Beasley has a good six inches on Bayless. But amazingly, Bayless won the tip – then things went crazy.
Bayless got the ball back and drove to the basket, missing a last-second attempt to tie the game. The ball was batted around was heading out of bounds, until Zaza Pachulia saved the ball and somehow found a wide-open Khris Middleton behind the arc. Before the final shot, Middleton was a dreadful 4-16 from the field. But, of course, he sank the only bucket that mattered. Then everyone freaked out.
