Derrick White has made a lot of noise around the NBA in recent hours, leading his Boston Celtics to a big win over the Miami Heat on Saturday night.
Just when everybody thought everything was lost for the Celtics, White grabbed a rebound off of Marcus Smart’s 3-point attempt and made a big bucket to beat the Heat.
This was a memorable moment not only for him and his team but the entire NBA.
Celtics reporter Jay King revealed that this was the second buzzer-beater in NBA history made by a player whose team was facing elimination and trailing at the time of the shot.

White’s shot was already great, but to make things better, he emulated what none other than Michael Jordan did in the past.
The famous shot over Craig Ehlo of the Cleveland Cavaliers was the first time a situation like this happened, which sums up how special this shot was.
The Celtics pulled off some sort of a miracle with this shot, and they hope to do it again in Game 7.
They can become the first team to return from an 0-3 deficit in NBA history, and the best part of it is that the final game is at TD Garden.
Boston is having a great run in the past three games, and they can finish this incredible series with their fourth consecutive win of the series.
