Chimezie Metu had scored 27% of his career at 3 points – and an even lower percentage this season – when he got the ball in the corner with the Kings two against the Mavericks and time running out.
Metu took advantage of the defensive attention drawn to Sacramento goalkeeper De’Aaron Fox (whose decision to pass paid off) by hitting the game-winning 3 points in a 95-94 win last night.

What a fun time for a team that had been in the landfills.
