Kyle Lowry made a three-pointer on Friday night that will quite likely go down as the most difficult shot made in his basketball career.

The Toronto Raptors’ point guard looked like he was about to make a pass on a pick-and-roll against the Washington Wizards, but instead threw up a wild line drive shot — adjusting mid-air with form you’d see on a soccer inbounds pass — from well beyond the three-point line.

It looked like Lowry was just trying to draw contact, hoping for a three-shot foul. Instead, he made the shot, incredibly.


That’s also how things are going for the Wizards this year, who are now 13-28 after this 140-111 loss to the Raptors.
