Shabazz Napier Hits A Game Winner Against Miami Heat

Miami Heat traded Shabazz Napier to the Orlando Magic earlier this offseason, and Napier already got the revenge on his former team. In a closely contested preseason game on Wednesday night, Napier was a hero.

Although Orlando Magic had a big lead in the fourth quarter, Miami Heat made a huge comeback and they turned 14-point deficit into a tied game. With just under 25 seconds left on the clock and the game tied at 97, the Magic had the ball and they gave it to the young point guard Napier who made a long range shot to put his team up by 3 with 3.5 seconds to go. Miami failed to convert on their final possession as their preseason record dropped to 0-2.

With this win and Napier's heroics, Magic improved to 1-1 record in the preseason. Interesting thing is that both the Magic and the Heat lost their first preseason game against the same opponent, Charlotte Hornets.
