Players can afford to take chances when their team is down 20 points in the third quarter.

The Fort Wayne Mad Ants' Jamaal Franklin may be in the NBA Development League, but he knows how to put on a show.

Franklin took advantage of a two-on-one break against the Maine Red Claws by lobbing a pass to himself off the backboard and throwing it down for two points. The flashy play worked to perfection, as the defender turned into a spectator.

Even though it was an impressive play by the guard, the announcer put things in perspective.
