Max Strus Hits Unbelievable Buzzer-Beater to Seal Cavs’ Victory

In an astonishing turn of events, Max Strus secured a sensational win for the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Dallas Mavericks with a jaw-dropping 59-foot halfcourt shot at the buzzer.

The Cavs, trailing by 10 points with less than four minutes left, staged a remarkable comeback. Strus, contributing five of the seven three-pointers made during the final stretch, including the game-winner, played a pivotal role in the thrilling victory.

The Mavericks had taken a slim 119-118 lead with 2.6 seconds remaining, courtesy of a layup by PJ Washington set up by Luka Doncic. In a strategic inbound play, Strus received the ball from Evan Mobley, launching the shot from well beyond halfcourt. The miraculous swish of the ball through the hoop set off jubilant celebrations in Cleveland.

Despite a standout performance from Luka Doncic, who recorded 45 points, nine rebounds, and 14 assists, the Cavs secured the win and solidified their position as the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

The game-winning shot by Strus now stands as the second-longest in the history of game-winning buzzer-beaters in the three-point era, adding an extraordinary chapter to the Cavs’ season.
