The “Last One” for Udonis Haslem, he went out a winner

The game was called the “Last One.”

The last regular season game for the visiting Orlando Magic and home Miami Heat was the potential final career game for Udonis Haslem.

The “O.G.” went out a winner and put on a show.

Haslem scored 24 points in his final regular season game

Haslem scored 24 points in his final regular season game; 13 were in the first quarter as the Heat topped the Magic 123-110 on Easter Sunday.

“Tonight was about the fans, my family, and all the people who have sacrificed and watched me play for 20 seasons,” Haslem said.

It was Haslem’s highest-scoring game since he had 28 points on November 14, 2009.

In Haslem’s 1,026th game, he was 9 for 17, 3 for seven from 3 at 42 years and 304 days; he is the 5th oldest player to appear in an NBA game.

Jimmy Butler was out for the Heat for rest. Magic rookie Paolo Banchero was out because of back tightness.

The season is over for the Magic. Heat host Atlanta in a play-in tournament on Tuesday.
