Who doesn't love a buzzer beater? Whether it's in the clutch, at the end of the first quarter or even in a blowout game, we all love it. 

So we had to talk about Dion Waiters' circus shot during the Miami Heat's preseason win over state rivals the Orlando Magic. 

With time running down in the first half, the guard raced up the court, went past Elfrid Payton and threw up a hopeful shot from half court under pressure from three Magic players. 


Incredibly, and much to the delight of the sparse crowd inside the American Airlines Arena, the shot found nothing but net and sent Miami into the break with a ten-point lead. 

In a game where Aaron Gordon and Bismack Biymobo sat out for Orlando, and Hassan Whiteside and Justise Winslow did not play for the Heat, the home side won by 30 points. 

Waiter's half-court shot was one of his two successful attempted from three-point territory as he shot 66.7 percent from behind the arc. 

The former Oklahoma City player finished the game with 15 points, shooting 55.6 percent from the field in his 27 minutes of action. 

No matter what the situation, buzzer beaters are never boring.
