Portland Trail Blazers guard Will Barton hit a leaning runner with nine seconds remaining in overtime to defeat the Atlanta Hawks 70-69 at the Las Vegas Summer League on Wednesday.

Barton filled the shot up and in after spinning back towards the right baseline. Video of the shot is below at the 2:40 mark via YouTube user Portland Trail Blazers.

Barton finished with 16 points on 8-for-17 shooting in 36 minutes in his first game back after suffering a knee strain against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday. He also tallied eight rebounds, four assists and seven turnovers.

With the victory, Portland advanced to the 16-team knockout stage round of the Summer League tournament. They will face the Phoenix Suns on Thursday at 5 PM.
