Max Strus must have ice in his veins because, on Tuesday, he absolutely nailed the filthiest game-winning half-court shot. With just 2.6 seconds remaining, Strus runs up to the top of the Cleveland Cavaliers logo and heaves up the ball as time expires. SWISH. The moment was so absurd that you need to hear the different TV and radio calls to fully digest it.

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Strus’s improbable bucket was the second-longest game-winning buzzer-beater in the 3-point era — A WHOPPING 59 FEET. An incredible shot like that needs to be watched over and over again, and there’s no better way to do it than by hearing sports announcers try to rationalize what they just saw. These calls will give you goosebumps.

Here’s Tim Alcorn on Cleveland Cavaliers radio.

Next up is Mark Followill, a Dallas Mavericks announcer.

Finally, this was the Cavs’ TV call.
