Orlando’s Andrew Nicholson hits jumper to force preseason OT vs. Heat (VIDEO)

1 Comment

I’m not sure why we need overtime in the preseason, but Andrew Nicholson hit a baseline jumper with 0.2 seconds remaining on Tuesday to force the extra session against the Miami Heat.

Nicholson hit a wide open shot, thanks to a nice sideline out of bounds play that created enough motion for Miami’s Shawn Jones to get completely lost defensively.

The Magic held went on to win 108-101, and the only other thing of note from this one was that the rumor was true — Mario Chalmers was in fact benched in favor of Norris Cole at the point guard position in the Heat starting lineup.
