Video: Spurs' Tony Parker hits impossible flip shot in Game 3 win over Warriors

The Point Forward noted Friday morning that Tony Parker had been a bit of an invisible man in San Antonio's first two games against Golden State, and that a series triumph by the Spurs was reliant on the French point guard offering some substantive counter-programming to the Stephen Curry Show.

Parker delivered in a major way in a 102-92 Spurs win in Oakland on Friday, scoring a game-high 32 points (on 13-for-23 shooting) and adding five rebounds and five assists to push San Antonio to a 2-1 series edge.

He also had a moment of pure magic with just seconds remaining in the first quarter, tossing up an impossible flip shot that banked in as he fell down in the paint, drawing an and-one. Parker set the play up by using a Boris Diaw screen to get switched onto Draymond Green. He then lost his balance as he turned the corner on Green, stumbling sideways into the paint before flipping up the prayer from his pocket as he crashed to the court.

Below, check out a few looks at his contorted body positioning as he released this one. Absurd.
