Khris Middleton hits insane buzzer-beater to force OT (Video)

We may be only a game into the NBA playoffs, but it is going to be tough to top the finish of Sunday’s contest between the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks.

After the Bucks hit a 3-pointer to tie the game with just seconds remaining, Terry Rozier appeared to play the role of hero for Boston when he put a beautiful move on a defender and knocked down a three of his own. Less than one second remained on the clock.

Since they had a timeout left, the Bucks were able to advance the ball beyond half court on the ensuing possession. That gave Khris Middleton just enough time for a catch-and-shoot situation, and he somehow buried yet another 3-pointer from way beyond the line.

The officials reviewed the play, and it was clear that the ball had left Middleton’s hand before time expired. That tied the game at 99-99 and sent it to overtime.

Your move, LeBron.
