Kelly Miller knew she didn't have much time.

The Indiana Fever guard took an inbounds pass with 4.9 seconds to play, drove to the basket and hit a short jumper just as the buzzer sounded last night.

After reviewing video of the shot, officials ruled the basket was good and that Miller had been fouled by Shameka Christon with 0.9 of a second to play.

She then hit the free throw to seal the 62-59 victory over the visiting New York Liberty.

"We work on that play a lot in practice," said Miller, who finished with 12 points. "It was something we felt comfortable with."

The winning basket took some adjusting for Miller to get in position for the shot.

"I'm a righty, so I did have to switch it [the ball]," she said. "I think the fact that I knew they didn't want to foul us and put us on the line [helped], and I knew we didn't want to settle for an outside shot."
