Pacers come out on top against Nets in Eastern Conference rivals clash.
With nine games on the NBA schedule on Saturday, it was Jeff Green’s stunning buzzer beater which is the talk of the night after he handed the Boston Celtics a win over the Miami Heat.
There’s no better place to start than the AA Arena, with Green draining a clutch three to secure a 111-110 win over Miami, scoring a team-high 24 points to lead them to victory.
With less than a second to go, the inbound pass found Green in the corner where he hit the three despite pressure from LeBron James to hand coach Brad Stevens a significant win after their early season struggles.
The defeat will undoubtedly be a shock to the system for Miami who have made a habit of late game heroics of their own, but coach Erik Spoelstra will now look for an immediate reaction from his players.
Elsewhere, with a game-high 24 points, Paul George led the Indiana Pacers to their seventh consecutive win to start the season, with a 96-91 triumph over rivals Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.
The impressive start from the Pacers continues as they remain unbeaten, and having made a statement early on with their run they will be looking to take the confidence of this winning streak forward.
There was also drama in Cleveland where the Cavaliers sealed a double overtime 127-125 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, while the Los Angeles Clippers picked up an impressive road win against Western Conference rivals the Houston Rockets.
Blake Griffin had 22 points while DeAndre Jordan grabbed 18 rebounds with the team once again led by point guard Chris Paul who contributed 13 assists in the 107-94 win.
Chandler Parsons impressed for the hosts with a game-high 23 points, but it wasn’t enough for the Rockets.
There was also a stand-out performance from Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry who had 22 points and 5 assists on his return from an ankle injury, but he couldn’t help them avoid defeat as they went down to a 90-108 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
