Luka Doncic stole a win for the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night.

With seconds remaining against the Memphis Grizzlies, the Mavericks were trailing 113-111, with Grizzlies guard Grayson Allen set to shoot two from the foul line.

Allen has made 90% of his free throws on the season, and two more would have sealed the win for Memphis. However, in a statistical anomaly sent from the basketball gods, he missed both.

After a timeout to advance the ball, the Mavericks had 1.8 seconds to make a miracle happen – two points to tie, three to win. Dallas struggled to get the ball in but eventually found a floundering Doncic, who put up a prayer that would be answered.

Game Mavericks.

The angle of his release only makes the shot more unbelievable.
