Sick Shot: Avery Bradley’s Behind The Backboard Swish
Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and Celtics guard Avery Johnson found this out in legendary fashion during a game against the Bucks on Tuesday night. After teammate Jared Sullinger airballed a long jumper (it appeared to actually graze the rim), Johnson grabbed the rebound underneath the hoop as he was heading out of bounds and proceeded to toss up a prayer over the backboard that managed to hit nothing but net a split second before the shot clock expired.
Bradley channeled his inner Celtic and got some of that luck of the Irish. Only Bradley’s not Irish.
