The Miami Heat had perhaps the biggest steal in the entire 2015 NBA Draft when they selected Justise Winslow 10th overall after he was projected to at least go top five. Heat president Pat Riley had someone to thank for allowing them to pick Winslow.
Pat Riley on landing Winslow: "Now we can go back and thank Khris Middleton for making that shot."

Khris Middleton, who is of course the Bucks current shooting guard, hit a buzzer-beating three against the Heat in Milwaukee on March 24th.
That shot would end up being the downfall of the Heat’s season as they missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007-2008. Without the shot however, the Heat more than likely wouldn’t get the 10th pick in the draft to select Winslow.
