AP — James Posey hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer Saturday night to give the Miami Heat a 98-97 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

Trailing 97-95, Miami controlled a jump ball with 1.8 seconds left and called timeout to set up the final play. Jason Williams threw the ensuing inbounds pass to Posey on the left baseline, and he launched a shot from 26 feet over the outstretched arms of Mike Miller for the game-winner.

“J-Will made all the reads for the play, and when I got it, I had a good look,” Posey said. “I got a great look. I could see the basket. The only thing I was really worried about was my feet being inbounds.”

Officials reviewed the play before ruling it good both from outside the arc and before time ran out.
