De’Aaron Fox did something last night that many have tried, yet almost all have failed.
The former Kentucky point guard was sent to the free throw line to shoot one shot with 4.7 seconds left to play. Here’s where it gets weird — the Kings trailed by two. Fox could’ve made the shot to make it a one-point game. Instead of extending the game by sending the T-Wolves to the free throw line, he took matters into his own hands.
Fox intentionally missed the free throw, secured his own rebound and made a game-tying layup to send the game into overtime.
“WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!?!”
Fox’s put-back capped off an incredible comeback from 27 points down with 15 minutes to play. The former Wildcat finished with 22 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds, while Buddy Hield dropped 42 to lead the Kings to a 133-129 overtime win on the road.
