Paul Pierce's 3-Pointer Gets the Ultimate 'Shooter's Bounce'

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffNovember 10, 2013

Basketball players sometimes get lucky with what they call a "shooter's bounce," where a shot takes a bounce or two before falling through.

Paul Pierce, however, got the ultimate "shooter's bounce" on this shot against the Pacers, and his teammates look pretty excited about it. The ball bounces on the rim five times before going in. FIVE.

Hat tip to SB Nation for the GIF.
