Mario Chalmers banks in 30-foot 3-pointer to beat third-quarter buzzer

Jun 20, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

Mario Chalmers, who knows something about making buzzer-beating 3-pointers in winner-take-all games, inbounded the ball with 5.2 seconds left in the third quarter, immediately got a pass back from Ray Allen and dashed upcourt unimpeded. Then, he pulled up from 30 feet to bank what has so far been the biggest shot of the biggest game of the NBA season.

A Gregg Popovich team should know to account for the inbounder, even if the inbounder never has a chance to get closer than 30 feet from the basket.

    There should be more haters commenting. They are so silent.

    C’mon guys, make some excuses. Blame the refs or something. Don’t just be silent on me.

    I know you wanted to see the guy fail but don’t quit being a jealous hater now. Keep going

    @jjones314

    Theyre all cowards. You know that. I know that. We all know that. They wont post. We must just accept that, accept theyre cowardness, and enjoy this Heat Championship on its own.

    This is the enigma of Mario. So many bonehead plays, silly fouls, then followed up by a cold-blooded shot. He’s not a top point guard by any means, and I constantly wonder if he should still be kept around because he is so Jekyll/Hyde, but on plays like this, I’m willing to give him a pass.

    They should subtract points when you unintentionally bank shi! in.

    I think that shot helped the Heat realize they would win
