VIDEO: DeMarcus Cousins calls glass, beats first-quarter buzzer with wild three vs Suns
It’s not every day you see Los Angeles Clippers center DeMarcus Cousins knock down a crazy buzzer-beating, step-back, off-the-glass- three. Lucky for us all, Boogie called the bank on Wednesday night and the bank was still open.
Check out Cousins’ crazy shot here:
With one second left in the opening quarter in Game 6 against the Phoenix Suns, Cousins drained an impressive bank shot from the left-wing right before the quarter buzzer sounded. Boogie’s shot was as smooth as butter and he was clearly unbothered by the outstretched arms of both Dario Saric and Mikal Bridges. Bridges had no choice but to scratch his head after Cousins cut the Suns’ lead to just four heading into the second quarter.
The four-time NBA All-Star has been on quite the journey in the NBA in his decade-long career in the league. After being signed and eventually waived by the Houston Rockets earlier this season, the 30-year-old found himself signing a couple of 10-days with the Clippers before finally inking a deal to keep him in LA until the end of the season.
The decision by the Clippers front office proved to be a huge one with Cousins getting some run as the team’s main option at the five with Ivica Zubac. Cousins hasn’t played a ton of minutes in the postseason so far but he’s made sure to leave an impact whenever he steps on the floor – even if there’s just a second left on the clock.
