A game-winning buzzer-beater for the ages was sank by Jeremy Lamb on Sunday night.

With only 3.1 seconds left, the Charlotte Hornets inbounded the ball and Jeremy Lamb made an unbelievable shot behind the half-court line. The preposterous game-winning buzzer-beater secured the 115-114 road victory against the Toronto Raptors and got the Hornets within a couple of wins from the playoffs zone.

The 26-year-old American guard finished with 13 points on Sunday. “It feels great,” he said and added: “We fought so hard the whole game. Everybody who came in contributed and played well. They made a big run late. It just feels good to get that win and cap it off like that.”

Asked how he banked the game-winner: “I have no idea, man. I want to thank Jesus Christ, because that’s the only way that shot went in. When I first shot it, it felt good, but in my head I was thinking, ‘It’s too good to be true if it does go in.’ I never in a million years thought it would go in. I thought it’d get close, but to see it go in, it was unreal.”
