Khris Middleton hit the game-winner and the Milwaukee Bucks survived the Miami Heat in Game 1 (107-109).

With the game tied at 107, Middleton (27 points) hit the jumper and gave his team the win in a late overtime thriller at Fiserv Forum. In the final possession, Jimmy Butler was blocked by Jrue Holiday and the Bucks sealed the deal.

Prior to that, Butler (17 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists) had forced an overtime, after hitting the two-pointer to tie the game at 99.

Milwaukee now leads the series 1-0, with Game 2 taking place on Monday.
