Jeff Teague took his sweet time getting off the last shot of double overtime for the Atlanta Hawks, but the ball itself took even longer to drop through the net to give the visitors a 127-125 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The fifth-year point guard out of Wake Forest wound the clock down from 21.7 seconds before launching the buzzer-beating game-winner, the first such shot of Teague's pro career.

Teague finished the night with 34 points, also a first, to go along with 14 assists, three rebounds and three steals in a whopping 49 minutes.
