I love it when a plan comes together!
Perhaps this isn’t that uncommon at all! This is now twice in a week where a player has managed to snag a rebound with their backs on the ground. On Sunday, Charlotte visited Cleveland and early in the first quarter, Hornet Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was about to grab a rebound when his teammate Marvin Williams jumped over to contest the rebound. After the collision, the ball bounced to Kevin Love on the ground who grabbed the gift and went up for a shot. The Hornets ended up losing to the Cavaliers 93 – 100.
On Wednesday, the Boston Celtics visited the Washington Wizards and apparently left their rebounding game at home. In one instance, all five Celtics on the floor were standing near the basket, but a Wizard, Bradley Beal, who was lying on the floor, somehow grabbed the rebound.
Boston ended up getting outrebounded 31-54, and lost the game 93 – 118.
Chris Boswell of the Pittsburgh Steelers had to try and get an onside kick off due to his team being down a touchdown with 48 seconds left in the game. Unfortunately for him, the kick did not go as planned. The Steelers went on to lose the game to the Baltimore Ravens, 21-14.
From the reddit thread, apparently Chris had executed this before, at the college level, for Rice University.
Last night, Russell Westbrook was driving to the hoop when Draymon Green swiped at the ball while he was gathering it. It resulted in a made basket, but did not look your normal shot. The Oklahoma City Thunder would end up losing the game to the Golden State Warriors, 122-96.
Karl Anthony-Towns to Andrew Wiggins for three! Sort of.
Karl Anthony-Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves, in a game last night against the Memphis Grizzlies, tries to drop off the ball to Gorgui Dieng showing at the free throw line, but the pass goes off the hands and off his face. Normally that is a recipe for disaster, but the ball somehow bounces to Andrew Wiggins, who knows what to do with it, stretching the lead out to 31 points. Minnesota would go on to win the game 116 to 80.
Oh, the dinosaur is out on the field!
