Video: Raptors’ Marc Gasol thoroughly disgusted with himself after banking in 3-pointer
Gasol pulled the trigger from way beyond the arc, getting the friendly bounce off the glass for the three points. But he seemed disgusted immediately afterwards, shaking his head even after the Grizzlies called timeout:

Not sure I've ever seen a player look more disgusted after making a shot than Marc Gasol just was after banking in a 3-pointer from the top of the key. Was shaking his head the entire way back down the court, and then after Memphis called timeout.

Perhaps Gasol felt it was poor shot selection. It was rather curious he chose to fire from so far beyond the 3-point line. Or perhaps he just thought it was pathetic that he banked in a triple from the top of the key.
Still, nothing wrong with three points.
The former All-Star has not had to score as much with the Raptors this season, but he has been an interior anchor for one of the best defensive teams in basketball.
Toronto was 3-1 entering Sunday’s matchup with the Grizzlies, and the Raptors are building momentum as the top challenger to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference.
