Watch Darius Miller score the longest shot in the NBA this season

A 73-yard swish.

Darius Miller has scored the longest shot in the NBA this season.

The New Orleans Pelicans small forward beat the buzzer with a swish from a whopping 73 yards (67m).

The 28-year-old’s remarkable three-pointer got the crowd on their feet and cut the Golden State Warriors’ lead to 21 points at the end of the second quarter, but it wasn’t enough to inspire a fightback.

The Warriors went on to win the match 123 points to 101 in game one of the Western Conference semi-finals.

The two sides will face each other up to a total of seven times over the next two weeks, with the second fixture on Tuesday, US time, and the last on April 13 unless a winner has already been established.

The winners of the semi-finals will advance to the third round, or Conference finals, with the victors there heading to the final round, the NBA finals – where the top team of the Eastern and Western Conference face-off in another best-of-seven series.
