Meet Mirza Teletovic. He's a 27-year-old rookie out of Bosnia who plays for the Brooklyn Nets. Teletovic doesn't play much though, only averaging 8.1 minutes per game. After his shooting debacle on Wednesday night, those minutes might get reduced.
In the middle of the fourth quarter with Brooklyn leading Detroit by one, Teletovic got a wide open look from the left wing and took a 3-pointer.
On Brooklyn's next possession, Teletovic got the ball on the left win again. This time, he drove to his left and hoisted a fadeaway jumper from 16 feet out.
Following a charging foul on Detroit's Brandon Knight, Teletovic got the ball at the top of the key and tried another 3-pointer.
"Three airballs in a row. That has to be an NBA record," the play-by-play announcer said.
Every airball happened within a span of approximately 40 seconds. Shortly after the three airballs, Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo took Teletovic out for Gerald Wallace, who scored six points down the stretch as Brooklyn went on to win 93-90.
After that, it's hard to believe Teletovic scored 10 points and had four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in a single game back in January.
