The Miami Heat have a few guys on their roster that know a thing or two about hitting game-winning shots.

LeBron, Wade, and Bosh have each had their fair share of clinching victories.

Lets take a look at the top ten game-winning/game-tying buzzer beaters ever made by current Miami Heat players.


10. Udonis Haslem Forces Overtime

Udonis Haslem beats the buzzer against the Golden State Warriors in 2008 to send the game into overtime.

9. LeBron Drives On Brandon Roy

Okay, technically, this one is not a buzzer-beater (the only one on the list that isn't). But there is only 0.3 seconds left on the clock when LeBron finishes this game-winner against Portland in 2008.

8. Wade Rattles It In

Wade rattles in this buzzer beater against the Jazz back in 2005.

7. Mike Miller Turn-Around Three

Mike Miller lifts the Grizzlies over the Spurs in 2005 with a turn-around three to beat the buzzer.

6. Wade Does it to the Jazz Again

Wade gets another buzzer beater to go against the Jazz, this time in 2007, forcing a shot against pretty solid defense.

5. Da'Sean Butler Banks in the Buzzer Beater Three

Da'Sean Butler of West Virgina downs Cincinnati with a dramatic, game-winning bank three pointer.

4. LeBron's Step-Back Buzzer Beater

LeBron steps back to hit the buzzer beater over the Warrior's Ronny Turiaf in 2009.

3. Dwyane's Step-Back Buzzer Beater

Dwyane redeems a costly turnover with a rebound and a silky-smooth game-winner against the Knicks in 2005.

2. Dwyane With the Game-Winning Steal and Floater

Dwyane Wade steals the ball in the final seconds of the game and puts in a buzzer-beating three-point floater against the Bulls in 2009.

1. LeBron's Three-Point Buzzer Beater in the Eastern Conference Finals

With one second to go in Game Two of the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals, James catches the inbounds pass and fires a game-winning three pointer at the buzzer.

So there you have the top ten buzzer beaters by current Miami Heat players. 

It will be interesting to see who gets the ball this season, should the opportunity for a game-winner arise.
