With his team trailing by two points in the final seconds of the second overtime, Dallas Mavericks point guard Deron Williams beat the buzzer with a three-pointer to give his team a 117-116 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.

After catching the inbounds pass behind the arc, Williams got Rudy Gate to bite on a strong pump fake. Then, with an open look at the basket, he took a shot for the win.

Bucket. Game. 

Williams led the Mavericks with 25 points, and the final three sent the American Airlines Center crowd home happy.
