Sacramento Kings forward Nemanja Bjelica drains the buzzer-beating triple to take down the Houston Rockets in their showdown at the Toyota Center.

With just one second left on the clock and the Rockets ahead 118-116, the Kings drew one last-ditch effort to win the game. Bjelica was able to free himself up from way beyond the arc, giving him the opportunity to drain the game-winner.

Bjelica is coming off a big performance against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, and he undoubtedly picked up where he left off in the second half of their back-to-back. He finished with 17 points, five rebounds and four assists.

After the victory, Bjelica was couldn’t hold back his emotions and sounded off with some not safe for work words.

To be fair, the Kings fought hard from start to finish. The Rockets led by as much as 11 points at one point in the game, but Sacramento managed to pull through and get their second straight win against a Top 5 team in the Western Conference.

The Kings improved to 10-13 on the season, while the Rockets dropped to 15-8. Sacramento is still looking outside the playoff picture, but they are gaining momentum as the competition intensifies.

Meanwhile, Houston remains one of the top teams in the West despite the latest debacle.
