Cedric Jackson’s miracle buzzer-beater

The New Zealand Breakers’ star American import Cedric Jackson is the toast of the NBL after sinking an incredible half-court buzzer-beater to win their match against the Perth Wildcats in double-overtime.

Trailing by one after the Wildcats sunk two free-throws with time almost up, Jackson launched a Hail Mary to pull off a miraculous victory.

Boasting a 19-8 record, the Breakers are second on the ladder behind Cairns Taipans as they seek to regain the NBL title they won in three straight seasons from 2011-13.

Incredibly, New Mexico-born Jackson already has an even longer match-winning long-range basket on an even bigger stage on his resumé.

In 2008, he garnered nationwide attention stateside when he drained a 60-footer to clinch an upset victory for Cleveland State over Syracuse in the high-profile US College competition.

Jackson joined the Breakers in 2011 after short contracts with the Cavaliers, Spurs and Wizards failed to earn him a permanent spot on an NBA roster. He was named the NBL’s MVP in 2013.
