Max Strus of the Cavaliers left fans in awe with a halfcourt buzzer-beater, securing a dramatic 121-119 win at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in a nail-biting showdown between the Dallas Mavericks and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday.

The chaos unfolded in the final moments, starting with a mistimed pass by Mavericks forward Maxi Kleber to Luka Doncic

However, the Cavaliers capitalized on the slim 2.6 seconds left, as Max Strus drained a 59-foot shot, igniting celebrations and sealing the victory.

The madness continued in the final four minutes, with Strus delivering an incredible display of long-range shooting. 


Scoring 15 of the Cavaliers' 21 points in that span, Strus showcased his prowess with five consecutive 3-pointers. 

The Cavaliers, initially trailing 110-100, orchestrated a stunning comeback led by Strus's offensive barrage.


Finishing the game with 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting, including a stellar 7-of-10 from beyond the arc, Max Strus played a pivotal role in spoiling Luka Doncic's stellar performance of 45 points, 14 assists, nine rebounds, three steals, and one turnover. 

Strus, who signed a four-year, $63 million sign-and-trade deal with Cleveland, continues to make waves in an impressive season for the Cavaliers. (Source: Yahoo Sports)
