Domantas Sabonis had a chance to be the hero for the Indiana Pacers in their season-opener against the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday evening.
With the score 123-122 in favor of the Hornets, Sabonis had a shot at the buzzer that just missed.
If it had fallen, the Pacers would be off to a 1-0 start.
Instead, the Hornets get revenge for the Pacers knocking them out of the play-in tournament last season.
The clip of Sabonis missing the shot can be seen in a post that is embedded below from Rob Perez in a tweet.
