Swaggy P made this one from the parking lot.
Who saw this upset coming? Friday night, the Los Angeles Lakers stunned the San Antonio Spurs with a 112-110 overtime victory in San Antonio. More shocking, however, was the shot that sealed the deal. With the shot clock expiring, Lakers’ guard Nick Young chucked up a prayer from behind the arc that somehow made its way into the basket. Watch the circus shot below.

Young finished the game with a season-high 29 points, shooting 64% from the field. Following the game, Young was quick to give himself a new nickname.
Nick Young: “I don’t miss. That’s my new name: IDM.”
