Bucks’ Khris Middleton Hits Crazy Game-Winning 3 vs. Heat (Video)

Khris Middleton game-winning three vs. Heat

Tuesday night’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat provided us with one of the NBA’s craziest endings to a game this season.

The real madness began with 10.8 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.  The Heat were leading 88-86 and the two teams were getting set for a jump ball at Miami’s free-throw line. That’s when this happened:

Monday was Bucks head coach Jason Kidd‘s 42nd birthday, and Khris Middleton just gave him the perfect belated birthday gift with this desperation heave at the buzzer.

The 89-88 victory gives the Bucks a 2.5-game cushion in their battle with the Heat for sixth-place in the Eastern Conference—and a chance to play the Bulls, Raptors, or Wizards in the first round of the playoffs, rather than LeBron’s Cavs.  It also keeps them 4 games clear of the ninth-place Charlotte Hornets, as Milwaukee looks to make the playoffs for just the third time in their past nine seasons.
