Wesley Matthews tipped in an offensive rebound with 1.8 seconds remaining to earn the Indiana Pacers a dramatic 180-106 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Matthews raced along the baseline to claim the rebound after team-mate Bojan Bogdanovic’s wayward mid-range jump shot deflected off the back of the Thunder’s rim.
Matthews rose higher than Russell Westbrook, claimed possession and, in one motion, laid the ball home via the backboard.
That basket capped a 19-point comeback for the Pacers, who outscored Oklahoma City 27-18 in the fourth quarter.
Westbrook had a chance to win the game for the Thunder in the last second, but his three-pointer from the top of the key hit the front of the rim and bounced away.
