Middleton beats Heat at the buzzer

Khris Middleton hit one of the best shots of the Bucks season, a three point buzzer-beater lifted the Milwaukee Bucks past the Miami Heat 89-88 Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

With ten seconds to play, the Bucks recovered a jump ball and Jared Dudley drove to the basket to try to tie the game with a layup. That shot missed, but Zaza Pachulia chased down the loose ball and flung it desperately to a waiting Middleton, who got the shot off with less than half a second to play. The Bucks piled on the court in celebration of an important late season win in their fight to retain the #6 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff chase.

Milwaukee rallied back after trailing by 14 with six minutes to play.
