Sacramento Kings guard Tyrese Haliburton hit one of the most incredible 3-pointers of the NBA season during a career night for the second-year player against Philadelphia.
The game, played in Philly on Saturday evening, saw Haliburton score a career-best 38 points for the Kings.
But it was this shot by the former Iowa State Cyclones guard that set Twitter on fire Saturday night.
Haliburton hit was amounted to a fallaway 3-pointer on the baseline as he was going out of bounds, a shot that cut Philadelphia’s lead to 103-101 in the waning seconds. The Kings ended up losing the game by that score.
For the game, Haliburton also had seven assists and three steals.
Haliburton has been the center of trade speculation in recent weeks, but not necessarily because the Kings want to move him. Rather, other teams have reportedly inquired about Haliburton, including the 76ers, who are mired in a near-year long standoff with guard Ben Simmons, who wants to be traded.
Sixers guard Danny Green and head coach Doc Rivers didn’t address those rumors, but they did rave about Haliburton’s game to USA Today.
The Kings actually have more former Big 12 players than any other NBA team. The Kings also have Baylor guard Davion Mitchell, Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield, Texas forward Tristan Thompson and Texas Tech guard Jahmi’us Ramsey.
