The Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Miami Heat 110-107 Monday night, riding a Josh Hart buzzer-beating three-pointer to a dramatic victory at FTX Arena.
Hart’s dagger three from the left corner came just seconds after Miami’s Max Strus made a similar three from the left corner to tie the game at 107-107 with six seconds remaining.
It was the second time on Portland’s six-game trip that a Blazers player nailed a buzzer-beater to deliver a win. Jerami Grant hit a baseline jumper as time expired to beat the Phoenix Suns Friday night.
Hart finished with 12 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Monday night’s win, doing a little bit of everything for a Blazers team that shot 53% from the field, including 43% from three-point range. Anfernee Simons led Portland with 25 points, while Damian Lillard added 19 points and six assists as the Blazers (7-3) improved to 2-1 on their trip.
