For Luka Dončić, any look is a good look—even an off-balance, three-point runner at the buzzer.

Dončić hit an impossible-looking shot on the game's final play as the Mavericks stunned the Grizzlies, 114–113, on Wednesday night, giving Dallas its seventh win in its last 10 games.

Dončić finished the game with 29 points on 10-for-20 shooting, with nine assists, five rebounds, two steals and a block. He's shot 41-for-77 (53.2%) over his last four games, averaging 29.3 points per game over that span.

The Grizzlies led, 113–11, with 2.2 seconds left when Grayson Allen was fouled after rebounding a missed free throw. Allen missed both free throws, setting the stage for Dončić's clutch shot.

For the season, Allen is shooting 88.4% on free throws. He finished the game with 23 points and four rebounds while shooting 6-for-11 on three-point attempts.

The shot was similar to Dončić's game-winner in last year's playoffs, when Dončić hit the winning shot in Game 4 of the Mavericks' first-round series against the Clippers. The win puts Dallas 2.5 games ahead of Memphis for the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference and 1.5 games behind Portland for the No. 6 seed.
