With the Miami Heat fighting for the right to play another game in the 2013 NBA Finals, they were looking for help from any and every person possible, even if that person was Mike Miller without a shoe.

Miami found itself digging out of a hole early in the fourth quarter as Miller had the shoe knocked off of his left foot, but play continued.

The ball went in the other direction with Miami transitioning on offense, which is pretty much the only reason Miller was on the court.

So, instead of taking himself completely out of the game to put his shoe back on, he picked it up, tossed it to the bench and kept on playing.

For whatever reason, Gary Neal decided that Miller with one shoe was not a threat, and he left him to run out to the three-point line by himself.

Miller was so open that he nearly had a quarter of the court to himself, so Miami got the ball over to him.

Lopsided, one-shoed and wide open, Miller reared back and knocked down the three with no problem as Neal sprinted over to him in an attempt to make up for his huge mistake.

Maybe Neal needs a quick refresher on basketball logic. You see, it's not a guy's feet that can make him dangerous, it's mostly the upper half of their body.

Miller would finish the game with eight points and seven rebounds in 30 minutes of play in an overtime classic, which the Heat won 103-100 to force a winner-take-all Game 7.
