The Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off one of the great finishes in the NBA regular season on Tuesday night courtesy of Max Strus and an improbable longer-than-half-court shot.

The Dallas Mavericks thought they had pulled off a dramatic finish themselves when P.J. Washington hit a go-ahead layup with 2.1 seconds on the clock. But Stus had some magic up his sleeve.

The Cavs guard let loose a 59-foot shot at the buzzer to win the game in the most dramatic fashion possible, stunning NBA Twitter in the process.

The only thing better than the shot? The call from Tim Alcorn on Cavaliers radio.

"This place is going crazy!" Alcorn exclaimed in the chaos.

And he was right. Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse was buzzing as fans lost their minds over the improbable ending.

The Mavs radio team couldn't believe their eyes.

Strus' effort was the second-longest game-winning shot since such things began to be tracked in 1997, according to NBA stats. It trailed only Devonte' Graham's 61.3-foot winner for the Pelicans in 2021.

Strus finished with 21 points, four rebounds and four assists. All seven of his made shots were triples, going 7-of-10 from beyond the arc. Five of those three-pointers came in the final four minutes of the game. He was on fire.

Cleveland won 121-119, improving to 38-19 on the season. They're one game ahead of the Bucks at the top of the division but 7.5 games behind the Celtics at the top of the Eastern Conference.
