Bucks forward Larry Sanders almost scores on wrong basket
Milwaukee forward Larry Sanders almost laid-in an easy basket on Friday night, before realizing his wide-open shot was on his team's own basket.
The hometown crowd, evidently expecting a different kind of fright on Halloween night, was audibly dismayed at Sanders' near-mistake.
Sanders' error came with just over six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, during a jump-ball near the Bucks' basket. At that point, Milwaukee was leading Philadelphia, 84-81.
Despite Sanders' miscue, the Bucks came out ahead, beating the 76ers, 93-81.
After their loss in Milwaukee, the 76ers stand 0-2, and travel back to Philadelphia to host the Miami Heat on Saturday night. The Bucks, now 1-1, travel to face the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.
No doubt Sanders will be receiving pointers on the proper way to play both ends of the floor.
