Magic rookie Elfrid Payton airballs 2 straight free throws

Thursday December 4th, 2014

Elfrid Payton accomplished a rare feat on Wednesday, but it is unlikely the Orlando Magic rookie point guard will want to celebrate the night he put up two straight airballs from the free throw line.

The 10th overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, Payton is shooting just 45% from the line after Wednesday's loss to the Clippers and 38.5% from the field.

While the double airball is certainly uncommon, it is not completely unheard of, as Pistons center Andre Drummond accomplished it just last season.
