Marcus Thornton took a shot I’ve never seen before (and probably won’t again)
During the Washington Wizards game against the Phoenix Suns, Wizards guard Marcus Thornton got the ball, spun into the middle of the lane and took what can only be described as an ill-advised shot.
The seven-year veteran got caught up with a Suns defender and lost his balance.
Rather than passing the ball, like any sane person would do, Thornton threw up a backwards, underhanded layup attempt.
In this case, no style points for creativity were awarded.

Washington did at least hang on to beat the Suns.
