Kevin Love entertained the Alamodome crowd by firing length-of-the-court, chest-flicked, two-handed shots at the basket at the far end.
After a number of near misses, he finally sank one off the backboard on what was probably something like his 10th try.
The crowd, not surprisingly, went nuts.
However, this isn't pure luck. He does this from time to time and hits a surprising number of them. He was featured recently on ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption" hitting an impressive number of them.
Actually, hitting any would be impressive. Reaching the basket is impressive. Most mortals would have to treat it as a par four and lag up. Forget accuracy: As a mere feat of strength this is amazing.
And now, in the show-biz tradition of saving the best for last, Love is taking halfcourt shots while seated on the floor. (He's reaching the hoop, but left after a couple of misses.)
