Philadelphia 76ers' Isaiah Canaan hit buzzer-beater off tipped pass

Tuesday February 24th, 2015

Philadelphia 76ers point guard Isaiah Canaan hit a jump shot from mid-air to beat the buzzer at halftime of the team's game against the Miami Heat.

Canaan caught the tipped pass from teammate Hollis Thompson but didn't have time to set his feet before getting the shot off.


The shot looked like a three-point attempt, but the referees ruled that because Canaan planted his foot inside the arc on his jump, it was only a two-point shot. The Heat won 119-108. - Sarah Barshop
