Jeff Teague Hits Wild Leaning 3-Pointer and Mimics Michael Jordan Shrug

Sometimes, it's better to be lucky than good. Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague happens to be both.

Teague appeared to be trapped in the corner with the shot clock running out in the fourth quarter against the Indiana Pacers, but he hit a miraculous three over a defender to put Atlanta up nine.

After the shot, Teague reacted in true Michael Jordan style, mimicking that famous expression from the 1992 NBA Finals.

The referees went back to review the play, and Teague appeared to step out of bounds before the shot. Unfortunately for the Pacers, league rules stipulate that referees can't change an out-of-bounds call before the two-minute mark.
