Watch Heat’s Max Strus drain 2OT, sudden death game-winner

LAS VEGAS — At Summer League, nobody is rooting for overtime.

But if it gets there, everyone pretty much roots for double overtime, which is sudden death. It’s random and an insane way to end a game, which makes it perfect for Las Vegas.

The Heat and Grizzlies went to double OT Wednesday. Miami’s Max Strus grabbed the opening tip, walked up, and drained the game-winner to end it.

That shot led to the best dad joke Tweet of the day.

Strus had 32 points in the game and shot 7-of-17 from 3 (41.2%). Through two games, the undrafted guard out of DePaul who is entering his third NBA season, has looked like someone Erik Spoelstra is going to have to find minutes for this season. Strus has been too good for Summer League.
