Thursday March 5th, 2015

A Houston Rockets fan nailed a half-court shot on Wednesday night to earn $25,000.

According to the announcers,  the fan is the first to make the shot since the Rockets began the promotion.

The guy shows very nice form on the shot, and even better form on the celebration, although he probably should have been called for a travel.

He was probably the only Rockets fan to go home happy on Wednesday as the team lost 102-100 to the Memphis Grizzlies on a Marc Gasol buzzer beater.
