Leaping Luka

16 Apr 2021

Grayson Allen is a 91% free throw shooter so with the Grizzlies leading the Mavs 113-111 and Allen at the line for two shots with 2.2 seconds left, the Grizzlies looked golden and the Mavs' Win Probability was flat lining at < 1%. But Grayson not only missed the game-clinching front end FT but the back end too, setting up Luka Doncic's heroics, Luka launching himself like a long jumper off one foot and nailing a 3-pointer at the buzzer to burn Memphis 114-113.

Doncic's shot created a push that sent 110 GridCard points up in smoke. Staying off that game benefitted cowboy (41/84) who won his first Hamlin-Hopper, edging out Butch (40/83) in what was one of the highest scoring King Kong contests ever on the GridCard. Both cowboy and Butch put up back-to-back TallBoys after earning 43 points each in the First Game. 

Six other players posted Qualifying Scores: Kevin K (35), Zeke (33), ranvilld12 (33), KDet047 (33), dkropf (32) and ProGrid Tour winner csmorgan71 (33).
