After injuring his shooting hand in the 2nd quarter, the right-handed New Zealander shot a pair of free throws with his left hand. He missed the firs, made the 2nd and then sprinted to the lockers.  It’s hard not to love the guy.

I’m not comparing this made threw to one of the greatest March Madness moments ever but seeing this reminded me of Bo Kimble’s tribute to the late great Hank Gathers. If you don’t know the story Bo honored his ex teammate in 1990 by shooting a left handed free throw in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Bo also attempted the first free throw of each season in the NBA with his left hand but unfortunately never made one.
