Matt Barnes Drains Ridiculous Half-Court Game-Winning Basket (Video)

Matt Barnes Half-Court Winner

After pulling down a defensive rebound with 5 seconds remaining and his team trailing by 2, the Memphis Grizzlies’ Matt Barnes probably should have called a timeout so that his coach could come up with a game plan that didn’t involve him heaving up an ill-advised prayer from half-court.

But Matt Barnes doesn’t like to do things the easy or conventional way, so he just carried the damn ball up to half-court, threw up a prayer, and celebrated a 93-92 victory for his team after it miraculously went in.

That’s right.  Matt Barnes. From half-court. Grizzlies win.

If you’re still having trouble believing it, there’s video below—although, watching it may only cause more disbelief.  Check it out:
